Richard has worked in many roles throughout Active Tree Services. Starting as a ground worker for the Sydney Commercial Division whilst studying at University in 2006, he went on to work his way around Australia for his father’s company. Richard has great memories of ground-lining for 1000’s of kilometers in far Western Queensland, project managing a systems roll out in Adelaide, and operations managing a medium sized cutting crew in South-Eastern Australia.
Alongside the time spent at Active Tree Services, Richard has also become a qualified Teacher, as well as building and running his own commercial snowboard factory in Niseko, Japan. A Bachelor of International Studies, a Master of International Affairs, and a Graduate Diploma of Education, have acted as a foundation for each of these pursuits. The challenges and learning Richard has undertaken outside of Active Tree Services both complement and broaden the skills he has learnt inside the company. Richard continues to expand his multidisciplinary learning and experiences in order to contribute in unique, yet relevant ways, as a Non-Executive Director on the Active Tree Services Board.
