Bill Richardson's story is told in his own words with humour and dignity, but it's more than a story of achievement and success. It tells of hard work and tragedy. It's a timely explanation of the philosophy of a man who recognises the value of family and friendship and how fair dealings must underpin all business transactions. Above all it's a warm acknowledgement of how a family type culture remains the best and most satisfying way for a business to grow.
Along the way he has built a collection of more than 150 vintage and old trucks in Invercargill, the largest collection in the country, visited by people from all over the world.
Bill Richardson has made a unique contribution to New Zealand business life and is a living reminder that values still have a place in a fast changing corporate world.
