My Bio

Richard is the CEO of Deloitte Australia. He leads the organisation with a focus on a distinctive culture that attracts and develops the best people, creates solutions for the most complex problems for our clients, and where we have the biggest impact on our communities.

One of Australia’s most respected and talented professional services leaders, Richard has spent more than 25 years in Australia’s largest Boardrooms. He is a financial services expert, specialising in general insurance, life insurance, investment management, property and real estate.

Richard loves all forms of sport, particularly running and skiing. He has completed 21 marathons.

I'm helping OzHarvest raise $3,000,000 to feed those in need in the OzHarvest CEO CookOff

I'm participating in OzHarvest's 2019 CEO CookOff, where top CEOs, chefs and companies work together to make a difference to Australia’s most vulnerable and reduce food waste.

We'd love your support in helping our organisation reach our fundraising goal! Every $1 donated to OzHarvest means they can deliver 2 meals to those in need.

Watch the video to see what this means to the people OzHarvest helps.

Stay tuned for the journey!
