Career in IT and Building Businesses
At the age of 24, he founded Printext Ltd, specializing in the supply of laser printers to the corporate market in Central London. Over the coming 10 years he built the business to 60 employees with annual revenues of more than 5 million dollars. During that time, he also bought and developed a computer manufacturing business, Olympian Computers Ltd, which was subsequently sold to a major computer manufacturer. Richard went on to create and develop yet another major venture, Integrated Document Technology (IDT) Ltd, a software company specializing in software for the Legal and Financial Services Industries. The company grew very quickly, both organically and via numerous acquisitions, into yet another multi-million-dollar organization. It was eventually sold 12 years later to a major NASDAQ listed U.S. Corporation.
For the next 4 years, Richard worked as a business consultant for various major companies in the role of Business Development Director.
