Richard Traherne

Chief Commercial Officer at Cambridge Consultants

Richard joined Cambridge Consultants in 2003 to lead its Wireless Division for 10 years, before joining the board to run the company’s commercial operations through a period in which the company doubled in size.  Cambridge Consultants is widely recognised as one of the founders of the Cambridge hi-tech cluster, Europe’s equivalent of Silicon Valley, and creates technology breakthroughs for its clients worldwide.

Prior to Cambridge Consultants, Richard started his career as a Radio Frequency design engineer in the days of analogue mobile phones, before assuming further technical, program and general management roles.  This culminated in him running the Radio Systems group of Tality Inc., the design services arm of Cadence Design Systems, developing advanced wireless technology for clients globally.

With a career focussed in the high technology sector, Richard’s work now centres around advanced innovation, global expansion and technology start-up and spin-out opportunities.
