About Rick

For 25 years, I've delivered projects and strategies at the leading edge of technology for some of the world's largest institutions, often in multi-£100million programmes.

Over the last 10 years, I've developed a passion for using technology to improve the social, economic and environmental outcomes of our communities and society, first as IBM UK's Executive Architect for Smart Cities, then as Director of Technology for Amey, one of the UK's largest providers of public and regulated services and infrastructure. Amey's services and infrastructure support the lives of about 1 in 4 of the UK's population every day; in three years at the company I built a £30m programme of projects driving innovations such as machine-learning, IoT sensors and robotics into those services.

I now lead Arup's multi-£million Advanced Digital Engineering business in the built environment, leading a team delivering high-technology services for some of the biggest property and infrastructure projects in the UK, Middle East and Africa.

I deliver my work in partnership with local authorities, communities, universities, and agile, innovative technology companies. I'm passionate that new technologies can make a significant contribution to both improving business performance, and to creating better places to live, work, travel and play: improving transport systems, stimulating job creation, reducing crime and alleviating social issues.
