The Richardson family has been in the property business for six decades and was headed by Roy, 87, and his twin brother Don, who died in 2007. The next generation is now taking the helm at Oldbury-based Richardson Capital, which is growing internationally and has developments in several countries, among them Hungary, Austria and Holland. Schemes include a 50% stake in the £600m regeneration of the former Ravenscraig steel plant near Motherwell and the redevelopment of Freemans Reach, part of Durham’s Riverside.
