Richard then went on to travel for three years working in various management and education roles in Europe, the Pacific Rim, and the USA. He then went on to lead the family business, University Tailors, from 1973 – 1988 and later used his entrepreneurial talents to start a successful tax planning business for senior executives that incorporated fashion, tailoring and executive presentation.

Richard was promoted to COO in 2002 and was in charge of returning the Tenet owned practices to the physicians until closing the division in 2004.
