A 2-year secondment to KPMG Australia from the UK turned into 18 years and still counting for Richard Marrison, National Technology Partner in Charge. "I've watched graduate recruits go on to be leaders themselves and it is lovely to be able to go on trips and find people that we have nurtured working in offices around the world," he says.
Recent years have seen unprecedented acceleration in the uptake of technology services, with Richard providing strategy and solutions to clients in transition. "It is great to be able to take clients through the process of technology transformation, helping them to gain competitive advantage," he says.
Richard advises organisations in managing large-scale business and IT change projects in the UK, Asia and Australia. Key to this is scenario planning, taking the approach for clients that “nothing is insurmountable”.
He also applies this determined philosophy to his life outside work. A climbing enthusiast, Richard almost made it to the top of Mt Everest, peaked Mt Kilimanjaro and plans to do more.
Between travel adventures, life is busy with his five children.
