Hi, I’m Richard Greville and I’m the Technical Director for Opticore, leading the technical charge in the business. We live in a period of massive change and transformation, technology moves at a rapid pace and being on top of these developments is what Opticore is all about.. I’m a big believer in culture and people and when we started Opticore I had the chance to do it differently and build a business based on my personal standards. My goal was not just to be the best consultancy on the planet but to grow, develop and nurture our people, to build an unstoppable technical work force that is highly collaborative with a culture first approach. I look back over the last year with over 70+ extra certifications added to the business and feel very proud of all our people, we have achieved the unbelievable!
I’m an avid techie, I love it, you have to love it… I have mostly hung up my console cable but still retain my CCIE number! Over my career I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the UKs largest companies, deploying solutions and change that impact everybody’s lives, from rolling out a UK wide MPLS network supporting the traffic of the largest mobile providers, to deploying multiple large scale (15K+ endpoint) wireless networks. And I have enjoyed every minute of it…even those cold nights sat in a DC!
My other passion (when time allows!) is mountain biking, I can be found meandering along my local trails, trying as hard as I can to hold onto my childhood! If anyone out there fancies hooking up for a ride, coffee or just to shoot the breeze, let me know!
