Project Management

The team at RJKM have over 30 years of “hands on” experience in managing a portfolio of projects both large and small. These projects include multi-million dollar infrastructure construction, large scale equipment manufacture in China, New Product development through prototyping, IT system integrations, business change management and on-boarding of new business acquisitions.

At RJKM, we understand that successful Project management involves an ability to manage complex personal relationships as well as Time and Costs. This often requires experienced and dedicated resources that are not always available within businesses that are fully engaged with their daily operations.

The capacity to undertake and successfully execute project activities is vitally important to growing businesses. Our experience tells us that even strong management teams need to be able to access experienced and cost-effective project management support, to seize the opportunity and deliver successful project outcomes.

About Richard

Richard Sykes has acquired more than 30 years’ experience in the Australian transport industry. He built his career on the strong foundations of loading and driving trucks, before applying his vision and innovation to managing various transport and furniture removal companies, with great success. 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 and setting new industry standards in container innovation.

Richard has maintained an interest in new product development. He has championed the design 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 with lower maintenance and repair costs to clients.

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

During his tenure as CEO of the SCF Group, Richard led teams through major M&A activities, Due Diligence processes and consulted closely with some of the largest transport operators in Australia to deliver outstanding logistics and performance outcomes.

Richard is the founder of RJKM and he believes that the business is uniquely placed to support our clients through a broad range of growth activities. Even the best management teams can benefit from engaging targeted support resources that can accelerate outcomes and transfer valuable knowledge.
