Unlocking Your Market Potential

Dick Collard
Mr. Collard has been in the forefront of European technology operations for almost thirty years, during which his accomplishments include establishing and running European operations for US high-tech companies, successfully integrating country managers and coordinating sales and marketing initiatives across diverse foreign markets.
Dick has delivered applications and tools across Europe to telecommunications and financial services industries, and his technical knowledge extends from hardware and embedded systems through to complex software development suites and business process automation software.
He set up Template Software UK in 1995, and under his guidance the company’s European operations grew to close to 200 people with annual revenues in excess of $25 million, accounting for over 50% of worldwide revenue. Template Software IPO’d on NASDAQ in 1997.
Prior to this he founded Instrumatic UK, the European arm of a pan-European supplier of high technology hardware and software solutions to industry, building the business up to £10 million in revenues, and then taking over as Executive Vice President for the parent company with responsibility for both operations and mergers and acquisitions.
His exceptional blend of solid technical know-how coupled with real hands-on international management experience in the high technology sector is a valuable resource that we tap on a regular basis for guidance in Kemarra’s initiatives.
