Richard joined Crossrail in June 2015 as Programme Controls Director. In his role he was accountable for ensuring visibility and accuracy of programme performance data, and providing the Executive Leadership with the information they needed in order to manage the programme and maintain their focus in the right areas. His move to Crossrail was a return to hands-on programme management after having spent the previous 6 years in the corporate world helping to run, grow and evolve companies such as Parsons Brinckerhoff, Balfour Beatty and Mace, where he was the Director of Programme Management for their Major Programmes and Infrastructure division. In 2016 he co-founded a UK Consultancy called Th3rd Curve, a business specialising in Programme Controls and Business Transformation.
Throughout his career, Richard has collected a broad range of major programme experience across mega-infrastructure projects such as the Fyled Coast Waste Water Programme, Jubilee Line Extension, Channel Tunnel Rail Link, West Coast Route Modernisation Programme and now Crossrail. He has a portfolio of different roles under his belt from design and construction management, commercial and project management to six sigma and programme controls to name a few.
He is a Fellow with the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Association for Project Management as well as the Guild of Project Controls. He’s also a Supervising Civil Engineer, very keen skier and triathlete
