Richard Sykes

Founder and Director of RJKM Richard Sykes has acquired more than 30 of experience in the Australian transport industry. He built his career upon the strong foundations of hard work and problem-solving involved in loading and driving trucks before applying his vision and innovation to successfully manage various transport and furniture removal companies. Richard co-founded the SCF Group in April 1992, with the company growing to become one of Australia’s leading suppliers of specialised container equipment while setting new industry standards in container innovation.

Richard ‘s interest in new product development has only grown over time. He has championed the designs of numerous new transport-related product types over the past 25 years, with many of these innovative products becoming industry standards. These products have resulted in greatly improved logistic cycles coupled with lower maintenance and repair costs to clients.

Much of this new product development has been achieved through close, loyal partnerships with Chinese manufacturers to produce innovative, quality products at affordable prices. Richard spent 25 years building the relationships and skill-base required to effectively manage the transition from new product concept, to initial prototype phase, through to full-scale commercial manufacture.

During his tenure as CEO of the SCF Group, Richard led teams through major Merger & Acquisition processes, Due Diligence processes, and has consulted closely with some of the Australia’s largest transport operators to deliver outstanding logistics and performance outcomes.

RJKM is uniquely positioned to support our clients across a broad range of growth activities through their innovative logistic container thinking. Even the best management teams can benefit from engaging targeted support resources that can accelerate outcomes and transfer valuable knowledge.
