Richard Sargent, our latest addition to "The Team", is a Test Management Specialist with exceptional Mechanical knowledge and many years of experience in a wide range of Technical Fields - from extensive Automotive to Web Finance. His early career in the UK Police Force gives him a certain "been there, done that" confidence which brings much balance to "our Force"
From his degree in Opthalmics, to managing multi-site and mutli-nation teams, Richard brings a calm approach to verification and validation, and an immensely practical solution oriented mind.
Richard thinks that a moment's pause is illegal and when he is not organising us (and helping our clients), he's rebuilding his home here in München.
