Rick Moore

Junior Account Manager

Starting his time with Paul Bristow’s only a few months before the pandemic started has meant Rick’s time with us has been far from normal. But in that time, he has quickly shown the diligence and dedication required to form great relationships with his clients. His knowledge of textiles and printed merchandise is growing quickly and that is largely down to the high standards of performance he expects of himself.
