Richard Brown explained: “The 31st December will be my last day as Managing Director of RJG Technologies before taking time out to reflect and decide what direction the next chapter of my life may take. I believe that the tenure of a Managing Director/CEO is a finite one and now is the right time to pass the baton on, as RJG Inc. want to reflect and adjust the direction of the business for the future.
