Position: Business Development Manager

Contact details: srichardson@pacerehab.com Tel: 01494 790490

Location: Based at Chesham, Bucks

Background: Scott was involved in a serious motorcycle racing accident whilst competing in the Isle of Man TT Races in 2000.  As a direct result of his multiple injuries, his left leg was amputated below the knee that evening.

Following a lengthy, but ultimately successful rehabilitation, Scott has become an accomplished prosthetic user and utilises his first hand experiences to assist enquirers to Pace.

(Scott returned to motorcycling, including competing at the Isle of Man again in 2004, using a specially devised prosthesis).

Career: Following his accident, Scott changed career completely, leaving the aviation industry to work at the Limbless Association (Outreach Officer), then at John Grooms disability charity (Project Manager), before joining the team at Pace in 2008.

Typically Scott is the first point of contact for new enquires.  Through his personal and professional experience he is able to assist referrers and patients to the appropriate Pace services.

Scott is often invited to present at rehabilitation conferences on behalf of Pace and regularly visits law firms (claimant and defendant); insurers; and case management companies to provide an increased awareness of Pace’s clinical and expert services and to keep audiences abreast of latest and future developments within the industry.

Memberships:

  • Limbless Association – member and volunteer visitor
  • BLESMA (British Limbless Ex-Service Men’s Association) – associate member

Other activities: Scott enjoys a keen interest in sport, including representing England at Parabadminton, winning medals at National, European and International competitions.

More recently he has swapped his badminton racket for golf clubs, taking victory at the Disabled British Open and the Disabled Czech Masters.  In May 2015 he achieved a 210 yard hole-in-one at Stockwood Park golf club in Luton and is an active member at Chiltern Forest Golf Club in Buckinghamshire.

Scott made his film debut in 2015, appearing in Star Wars VII as an amputee creature called Quiggold.  Read more about his role HERE.
