As Assistant Production Manager, Richard Morris will be working in the tech services in the production management team.

Dale Parmenter, CEO at drp, commented, “drp has seen a significant growth across the team during the past year, extending our capacity and capabilities across every area of the business. It is great to see our team establish themselves in the creative industries we work in, and as we progress we will continue to hire determined individuals. It will always be essential to us to employ people who have the ‘anything is possible’ mind-set inherent in their work ethos, which drp upholds.”
