Tang Richard

Zen Internet

Speaking on  - -

Richard Tang founded Zen (www.zen.co.uk) back in 1995, with the internet in its infancy and just a few thousand pounds in the bank. Today, Zen is a £71m business, providing networking, connectivity, cloud and voice solutions to over 100,000 customers throughout the UK.

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.
