Richard Shaieb began his career at Whitlam Group as a press operator when his father purchased the company in 1973.
Through self-tutelage, Richard came to understand the inner workings of a press and the entire production process. One major factor that prompted his many achievements was his creative ability to continually challenge the status quo by developing unique improvements to the manufacturing equipment.
When Richard was encouraged to continue his education, he went back to school and studied Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Once he graduated, he was named Vice President of Operations in 1985, which ultimately led to his current position as CEO in 2000.
