Richard Chan - Principal Consultant

Richard leads all client engagements delivered by TransformIT.

Richard started his career in the United Kingdom and across Europe as a Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse consultant for Oracle Corporation and later as a Technical Data Warehouse Manager for Kraft Foods. Changing tack, he then took on a role as a security consultant with Detica (now BAE Systems Applied Intelligence).

After emigrating to New Zealand in 2007, Richard worked as a Data Warehouse Architect for Meridian Energy and then as both a Solution and Enterprise Architect at the Ministry of Health before returning to consulting with Deloitte where he helped them establish a NZ Oracle practice.

Having finishing setting the groundwork for Deloitte to later acquire Asparona, Richard left Deloitte to found TransformIT in 2011.  Deloitte became his first customer.

Outside of work, Richard is a keen social dancer and assists in the teaching of Salsa at a local dance school.
