Richard Price MSCE

Associate

Richard has been with Process Logic since mid-2014 and is a great Systems, Platforms and Networking resource for us. He first found his “techy” side when he was serving with HM Armed Forces and went on to gain significant Client/Server, IT/IS Systems Infrastructure and Networking (TCP/IP) experience with IBM and others in the early to late 2000’s. Richard says:

“I’m enjoying the opportunity of getting into something which is a little different for me. There’s a great team ethic and atmosphere at Process Logic and my communications and IT platform skills certainly compliment the engineering and industry expertise within the company.”
