Richard Blackett


I have worked in the financial planning industry since I left University with a BSc (Hons) in Agricultural Food and Marketing in the late 1980’s. I am a Director of Blackett Walker, which is one of the leading financial planning businesses in the North East and BW Medical Accountants which provides financial advice to medical professionals.

I live in rural Northumberland with a family farming background which I continue to enjoy. I’ve been brought up with all manner of animals including dogs from Collies to Lakelands and Dobermans and more latterly a Dandie Dinmont called Pepper.

As man’s best friend, bringing dogs into contact with the elderly and isolated will provide great comfort to many in our region so I’m really pleased to be involved with helping Wag & Company to thrive and to be well supported by the wider community.
