Former Plunkett Foundation Chief Executive Richard Moreton became a Plunkett Fellow at the 2013 Plunkett Foundation AGM.  Richard originally joined the Plunkett Foundation team for the first time in the 1980s working closely with another Plunkett Fellow, Edgar Parnell.  Richard then rejoined Plunkett as Chief Executive in 2000 and led the organisation until late 2006.  Richard has contributed hugely to building what the Plunkett Foundation is today.  Under Richard the Plunkett Foundation took on the community shop support role previously provided by ViRSA.  He developed Plunkett's reputation as experts in rural social enterprise and also conceptualised the Making Local Food Work programme which became a reality shortly after leaving the Plunkett Foundation.
