The rise of the Internet and our AI future!

But Richard’s founding, people-first, principles remain just as strong today as they did over 23 years ago. Richard believes in a fairer way of doing business, in putting people before profits. And as Zen’s sole shareholder, Richard ensures that these principles will always remain the cornerstone of his business.
