Allen Smith, Co-Founder & CEO of DMCG Global, Australia commented,

This is the third time I have hired Richard and suffice to say each time I have, he’s been a real blessing. As DMCG Perth looks to strengthen and build out the technical offering, it was clear we needed someone who didn’t just think like a recruiter but actually went deeper beneath the surface to assist businesses through some of the realities and challenges they could face beyond recruitment.

He’s got a great entrepreneurial mindset, strong moral compass & values, and is responsible for hiring for some of Australia’s biggest IT companies. We really lucked out with this hire and I am beyond excited to work with Richard again, someone I consider a great friend as well.
