About the Presenter

Richard Haynes Cofounder and CoCEO, Product Manager

Richard is an engineer with over 20 years of experience in consulting, management and software design. His experience spans multiple sectors including mining, electricity utilities, renewable energy and construction.  He is passionate about the environment and continuous improvement.  His real journey towards co-founding eTool started back in 2008 on a week-long expedition across a remote Canadian icecap.  He saw firsthand the damaging effects of climate change on the glaciers and made a personal promise to dedicate what talents he had to reducing global warming.

Since then, Richard has been the driving force behind software development bringing eToolLCD market and making sure it leads the construction sector towards a low carbon future.  Outside of work Rich is a proud and active father of three boys who he is slowly introducing to the wilderness.  He’s looking forward to them accompanying him more on his trekking, climbing, biking, and backcountry skiing adventures where he’s been most moved by nature.
