Richard's experience in database marketing and predictive analytics dates back to 1983, when he received an MBA from Concordia University in Finance and Statistics. His initial experience at organizations such as Reader’s Digest and American Express allowed him to become a pioneer in the application of predictive modelling technology for all direct marketing programs. This extended to the introduction of models which targeted the acquisition of new customers based on return on investment.

Richard is a recognized authority on predictive analytics and is among a very few, select top 5 experts in this field in Canada, with expertise and knowledge that is difficult, if not impossible to replicate in Canada. This expertise has evolved into international speaking assignments and workshop seminars in the U.S. , England, Eastern Europe, and  Southeast Asia.

He has co-authored white papers on the following topics: ‘Best Practices in Data Mining’ as well as ‘Customer Profitability:  The State of Evolution among Canadian Companies’.  In Oct. of 2014, his new book on “Data Mining for Managers-How to use Data (Big and Small) to Solve Business Problems” was published by Palgrave Macmillian.

Richard is currently developing an online course on Data Mining for Business for publication on the ConverseLink E-Learning Platform.
