Erick Kervaon


Erick Kervaon is an entrepreneur and respected local businessman. In addition to being General Manager of the prestigious Bingham Hotel, Erick also owns two other businesses in the hospitality industry and is a huge supporter of local businesses.

Being a local hotelier, the benefits the BID could offer to businesses in Richmond upon Thames were obvious to Erick and his original involvement was as a member of one of the steering groups. When invited to stand for election as chairman of the BID board, Erick was happy to do so.

Gabriel Irwin

Vice Chairman

After a career in international finance, Gabriel was keen to apply his business skills and expertise to his own venture. In 2012 he took over Foot Solutions in Red Lion Street and quickly turned the business around. As a local retailer, Gabriel believed that the BID could help Richmond upon Thames realise its potential as a leading shopping and leisure destination and has been involved from the beginning.
