Following service in the Canadian military, Richard crafted a 30-year company / industry-award winning career in the financial services sector with Manulife Financial. As a Regional Vice-President, he developed high-performing, multidisciplinary teams supporting a multi-billion-dollar distribution and service operation, partnering with thousands of financial professionals across six provinces.  

Richard also served in senior industry / civic roles such as the Chair, Board of Directors of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, the Manulife Field Executive Advisory Council, and the Ottawa Board of Trade.  

Richard now provides consulting and coaching services to executives in businesses and government ministries on a referral-only basis.  

His business passions evolved naturally to teaching. He was the only sessional professor to teach leadership skills concurrently in the MBA programs at both Carleton University and uOttawa. Additionally, he taught MBA business ethics, leadership, and organizational influence at Donghua University in Shanghai, China. 

Currently, Richard provides leadership / team development coaching for our Telfer MBA student teams. He values the opportunity to directly contribute to the development of future generations of organizational leaders. Recognized for his energetic and student-centered teaching style, Richard has earned consistently outstanding student evaluations and several prestigious teaching awards, including uOttawa’s Professor of the Year.
