Richard helps Hollywood Monster set sights on new sectors

Leading signs and graphics company Hollywood Monster has appointed Richard Hinckley as national business development manager, to help generate new leads in the company’s target sectors.

Before joining the Tyseley-based graphics company, Richard worked as the sales director of Total Access UK Ltd – the UK’s leading provider of height safety support services – and has been involved with projects both in the UK and overseas.

Drawing on his connections within the construction, property and facilities industry, Richard will focus on developing Hollywood Monster’s business leads in these sectors.

Hollywood Monster is currently celebrating its 21st anniversary during a year that has seen the company welcome 20 new employees and invest more than £1 million in new equipment to help it develop and grow the digital print side of the business. During 2012 the company won its largest ever contract, producing more than £1 million of banners, signs, graphics and wayfinding for retail giants Westfield at its huge shopping centre site adjacent to the Olympic park in London.

Richard, aged 43, from Redditch, said: “I am thrilled to be joining Hollywood Monster’s dynamic team. The company has had an exciting year and has an excellent reputation in the industry. I hope to add to this success in my new role as business development manager by securing new business to drive Hollywood Monster forward. I was involved with the business when it started 21 years ago and I’m over the moon to be rejoining Hollywood Monster during these exciting times.”

Tim Andrews, managing director of Hollywood Monster, said: “We are really pleased to welcome Richard to the team and I look forward to working alongside him while developing our client list within a range of sectors.”
