Richard Longhurst is Co-Founder and Director of Lovehoney. Lovehoney is the leading online sex toy retailer in the UK and growing rapidly internationally as a retailer, manufacturer and distributor.
Former Tech Journalist Richard Longhurst founded Lovehoney alongside Neal Slateford in 2002. The entrepreneurial pair started trading from their bedrooms after seeing a gap in the market for a female friendly online sex toy retailer.
The focus on exceptional customer service, product innovation, and creative marketing has placed Lovehoney at the forefront of developments in the sexual wellbeing market. 15 years later, Lovehoney is officially the UK's largest online sex toy retailer, with over 240 employees worldwide, with warehouses in Bath, Atlanta, Brisbane and websites in 8 markets.
In 2016 Lovehoney was awarded the Queen's Award for Enterprise for International Trade. Richard is a keen 4-handicap golfer, so if you want to sell Lovehoney something inviting him to a top-notch golf day is a good start.
