Rich joined CGI in 2020 and worked initially as the solution architect and technical lead on the NERIMNET project for BEIS. This was a transformation programme relating to the monitoring of nuclear incidents and response management. More recently, Rich has been working with the Office for National Statistics on an application modernisation programme.

Outside of project work, Rich is actively involved with CGI software communities and has interest in software quality and security, delivery automation, cloud technologies, Elasticsearch and machine learning.

Rich promotes knowledge sharing and continuous learning, encouraging well-written technical documentation to explain the “why”, not just the “what”. His core skills include software engineering, micro-service architectures, cloud native software and Elasticsearch.
