Richard Goldstein graduated from the University of Cambridge with a degree in Law in 1983. He went on to qualify and practice as a Solicitor in London, specialising in company, commercial and M&A work at the leading law firm Herbert Oppenheimer Nathan & Vandyke. After a period as Legal Counsel at Superdrug Stores PLC, he then undertook further graduate studies, obtaining an MBA with Distinction from INSEAD in France in 1990. Since that time, Richard has been involved in a large variety of corporate and investment activities. He led the buy-in, and subsequently the executive management, of Harding Brothers Limited, now the second-largest global operator of retail environments on board luxury cruise ships. Since relinquishing his executive responsibilities for purchasing, logistics and commercial affairs at Harding Brothers, which has since been sold, Richard has operated and managed the investment activities of a family investment office. He acts in certain cases as a non-executive director of its direct private equity holdings, which include Imagen Therapeutics.
