Richard Talmage

Richard originally joined SMS in mid-2015 to deliver a robust foundation on which to grow the Clever Buoy technology and to ensure the successful delivery of the Clever Buoy trial at Bondi Beach, NSW in Q1 2016. Richard then ensured that the Jeffrey’s Bay deployment in South Africa for World Surf League was a success and shortly after joined SMS full-time as General Manager in August 2016. Richard brings over 16 years’ experience in delivering complex technology programs and projects across multiple industries including finance, mining, oil and gas sectors. “The Clever Buoy project has been an exciting journey for me. Over the past two years we have successfully created a unique, commercially viable and non-invasive alternative to historic shark mitigation methods that will benefit communities around the world in years to come.”
