Rick is an entrepreneurial veteran of Australia’s payroll software market, with 35 years’ experience building and perfecting payroll systems including as HR3’s Chief Executive Officer since 2000.
Writing his first payroll system in 1981 at the age of 19 – which was widely used by leading fashion industry companies of the day including Country Road and Witchery – Rick went on to co-found software start-up Data Scope Systems at the age of 22, which was later rebranded HR3.
Rick’s achievements include designing another four complete payroll systems, just one of which was Australia’s first Windows-based payroll system Winpay, one of Australia’s most successful payroll software sellers. At ReadyTech, Rick is a central figure guiding employment product strategy.
