Richard Hannah was born in the UK to West African immigrants. His father served in the Royal Air Force and his Mother was an NHS Nurse. Their work ethic and dedication to service were hugely influential on Richard and his siblings, despite both dying over 30 years ago. Hannah boasts a truly mixed heritage - West African, West Indian and South American. With Father being posted all over the world the young Hannah grew up in Military bases in the Far East, Middle East as well as Europe. Hannah's own careers meant that he continued to travel the world living and working in the USA, Europe, and the Far East. Hannah was schooled on Military bases before his Father demobbed and settled in Oxfordshire. He excelled academically as well as in Sport, Music and Drama. He represented England Schools at Athletics, played Chess to County Standard, showed early talent as a French Horn Player and Vocalist, and even regularly broadcast on the radio. Clearly, multi-talented his early career saw him flirt with both the military before settling into a career path that has taken him from practicing law to Senior Executive with some of the world's largest companies (where he maintains as a parallel career). He has six grown up children and step children who have collectively produced ten grandchildren and he now resides with wife, Lorraine in Spain.
