Adept at building teams, brands, and company value

Hi, I'm Richard!​

With a career in marketing and executive leadership stretching over 20 years in the B2B and B2G sectors, I have always been driven by the challenge and excitement that comes from nurturing start-ups, boosting scale-ups, and contributing to the growth of established companies.


As a trusted advisor, I deeply understand the growth and scaling challenges and what it takes to overcome them. My experience includes:

Models: B2B, B2G​

Solutions: Software, Hardware, Services

Industries: Semiconductors, Telecommunications, Medical Devices, Media & Entertainment, Public Safety, Automotive, Industrial Automation, Manufacturing​

Channels: Direct, System Integrators, Value-added Resellers, Distributors

When not helping clients or mentoring up-and-coming marketing rockstars at, I’m diving into the blue abyss, sailing the open seas, or carving (and occasionally face-planting) through snow. 


Let's connect if you want to navigate uncharted waters, accelerate growth, or need a seasoned captain to guide your marketing efforts.

Geoff Bellew, Founder/President

"Richard is invaluable to founders and CEOs striving to win in new or existing markets, where brand, customer intimacy, revenue generation and staking out a clearly understood and differentiated value proposition is required."
