We know there’s one thing that really sets us apart: our people. In this series, we take you behind the scenes with people from all over DB Results and show you what really makes us tick. 


Hey there, my name is Randall, and I am a Lead Consultant at DB Results.

I have been with DB Results for 5 years, initially joining as an Associate Consultant right out of university and progressing to my current position. At work, I wear several hats and would like to think of myself as an all-rounder in several areas rather than a specialist of one – I divide my time between business analysis, design and digital team lead roles.

My current project is with a leading organisation in the travel industry where I am both the Digital Team Lead and Lead Business Analyst, managing a team of 10 people. In this role, I am required to juggle multiple responsibilities to help ensure the progress of the team, including documenting and reviewing requirements, and reviewing what the team has built while providing regular updates to stakeholders.

People often seek my advice for problem-solving, design questions, and managing challenging projects. I think the ability to switch contexts has been a key factor in my performance, and it’s an underrated skill.  As a consultant, each day brings new surprises, and being prepared to handle the unexpected is essential.

At university, I majored in Economics and Finance. By the end of my studies, I realised I wanted a career with purpose rather than a typical finance role. I discovered DB Results while applying for various positions, and I am incredibly grateful for that decision. Working at DB Results has provided me with a fulfilling career and accelerated my professional growth.

I have so many career highlights to choose from in my 5 years! The exposure to different industries and projects has been incredible. Given the size of DB Results, I have been able to build relationships with a lot of my colleagues and learn from everyone’s diverse range of experiences. Everyone here is so supportive which has allowed me to grow into the person I am today.

One of the standout projects I’ve worked on was GenV, a research initiative by the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI). GenV aims to better understand and address complex issues affecting children’s development, health, and wellness. Being part of this project as a business analyst was incredibly rewarding, as I contributed to the platforms for their state-wide participant recruitment rollout.

Another one of my favourite projects was a digital initiative for Maurice Blackburn in the second half of 2020. During the peak of COVID, this project was one of our first completely virtual endeavours. The team’s exceptional effort allowed us to fast-track the solution. As one of my first projects, it was an invaluable learning experience. I gained a lot from working with such a talented team and had the opportunity to take on additional tasks beyond my usual role.

There isn’t really a “worst part” of my job and sure, things can be challenging at times, but I enjoy tackling those difficulties. I believe that while something can be tough in the moment, the experience will pay off and help build valuable, tangible skills in the long term. The best part of my job is seeing the positive changes we can deliver, and being able to witness the impact of our work at DB Results.

Outside of work, I am a sporty and active person who has been playing basketball for the last 10 years. Born and raised in Regional Victoria, I love unwinding after work by getting outside and catching up with friends and colleagues over drinks on a Friday night. I have had the opportunity to travel extensively, with my time in Europe last year being a major highlight and am proud of purchasing my first home in inner Melbourne which I am moving into in the next few months!
