Big Picture Projects.

Richard, our agency Managing Partner, brings expertise in all aspects of account handling and is a Commercialisation Expert.  From raising Venture Capital for Central Eastern European power stations to Commercialising nanotechnology projects in NZ and Europe, big picture strategy for Business or Defence is his thing.

Latterly, he became an expert in Commercialisation, especially within the NZ Scientific community for the MacDiarmid Institute and Dodd-Walls Centre, bringing sophisticated University Research Projects to market and export.

Now based in Warsaw, he is the European liaison for our Northern Hemisphere business. Passionate about scaling products and landing them successfully in new markets, Richard is especially interested in raising investment for start ups. “The amount of innovation coming out of NZ is staggering, especially when you look at what’s happening in the research spaces within the Universities. Packaging that innovation into compelling brands and telling the story clearly not only for consumers but investors is key to growing NZ brands into export markets. So, having an expert in Commercialisation make a huge difference.,” says Richard.
