Richard Fraser, CEO
I have been a part of Frenkel Topping for 28 years having joined as a director in 1991. I am currently chief executive officer for the company, and my main role is managing the strategy of the group and the innovation, development and profile of the business.
The most rewarding part about working at Frenkel Topping for me is being able to both help our clients and build strong relationships with the staff.
My brother broke his back falling out of a window at university in 1986, when he was only 18. He has been paralysed from the waist down ever since. To this day my mum cannot look at a photograph of Andy pre-accident. This has given me a good insight into the effect a catastrophic injury can have on an individual and their family. This gave me the drive to make sure Frenkel Topping delivers the best, most transparent service possible to our clients.
