Richard leads and transforms businesses for sustainable growth. Starting with a clear and compelling vision for the business’s strategic situation, he brings together the people, plan, and processes to achieve that vision and focus on working as one to deliver results, learn, have fun, grow, and realise full potential. As a business leader, and in senior executive roles in strategy, operations, growth, and M&A, Richard led, reshaped, and grown large, complex businesses in the WATER, industrials, building materials, waste, management consulting, and downstream oil sectors in Australia, New Zealand and south-east Asia. This diverse experience helps him identify and deliver lasting growth with a blend of strategic insight, commerciality and pragmatism, and by leading whole-heartedly. Richard sees his role as a leader as shaping an environment where people and teams can become their best. By doing this, he had the privilege of seeing talent unleashed by building trust, found courage in using values to guide critical decisions, felt the joy of solving tough challenges together, and experienced the progress and innovation that’s possible when we take responsibility, collaborate and learn from setbacks.
