Richard started life as an Engineer in Australia’s telecommunications provider before progressing to the role of Telecommunications Manager for the city of Canberra, the capital of Australia, with responsibility for the telecommunications of 14,000 government workers. This background led to the start of his consulting career, starting with IP telephony. He followed the technology waves from telephony to unified communications, and then to the cloud with Office 365 which led to engagements in Windows desktops, Active Directory and email services.
Richard founded Peerless IT in 2007, a specialist team with expertise in refresh and migration services for Microsoft Windows computers and dependent applications and services: refresh of existing devices; rollout of new devices or applications; or, migration to new Active Directory domains and email platforms.
Over the last 10 years, Peerless IT has migrated thousands of Windows computers, Active Directory accounts and Office 365 mailboxes in large complex environments.
