Patrick Garrett Six Park by Patrick Garrett

I’m pleased to announce that a fortuitous connection between mutual friends has led to the arrival of Ted Richards to the Six Park team.

Many of you will know of Ted from his successful days as an AFL premiership player with the Sydney Swans (originally with Essendon), where he earned accolades not only for his football skills but also for his leadership, toughness and sportsmanship. He was a board member of the AFL Players Association from 2012-2016.

What many of you might not know is that Ted has a Bachelor of Commerce (Business Administration and Management) from the University of NSW and, whilst playing professional football, Ted also got his Masters of Business Administration (MBA) in finance from 2011-2014. Ted also has held internships spanning 6 years at Citigroup and Airlie Funds Management.

Ted recently moved back to his hometown of Melbourne with his wife Ella, also a Melbourne girl, and their 3-year-old son, Beau.  Ted and Ella are expecting their second child later this year, so some busy but exciting times ahead.

Ted is our Director of Business Development and brings a full complement of skills to bear on what promises to be an exciting growth stage for Six Park. He will be working closely with Andrew Grieg, our Head of Sales, to expand our reach into the market and develop innovative ways to help Australians invest in a smart, low cost and trustworthy way.

Welcome Ted, we’re thrilled to have you on board.
