Passionate about the alchemy of people, products and technology, and always looking out for the next big thing in digital television, Richard has sustained a track record of UK world-firsts in flat-panel, widescreen, and digital TV.
A design engineer by profession and an executive leader with 30 years of board experience, both in large corporations and scale-ups, he is perfectly placed to drive the DTG’s unique collaborative culture, placing it firmly at the centre of UK television.
He is passionate about this sector and creating long-term shareholder and stakeholder value through genuine innovation and collaboration. His breadth and depth of experience in senior roles spans technology, product design, marketing, commercial, strategy and Governance at Sony, Toshiba, Pace, Freesat, NMITE, SafeShark and the DTG.
And, both he and the DTG have been recognised by many international institutions for their work during his tenure – including winning a coveted Emmy and again being named one of the top 50 most influential people in the sector for 2023.
