I’m a senior leader with over 20 years experience in the IT industry and have worked with both large corporate and small businesses across sectors including Finance, Utilities, Government, Airline & Aviation, and Manufacturing. I have built business cases to attract multinational investment to New Zealand, led large-scale outsource/’best shore’ initiatives, and worked with start-up and high growth potential companies to realise business success.
Over my career, I have taken an active role in many initiatives designed to develop high-growth-potential companies in New Zealand. This includes serving as a founding member of the advisory board at NZi3, and previous involvement with HITLab, Powerhouse, and the University of Canterbury commercialisation office. As a committed Cantabrian, I’ve recently been focused on initiatives to develop skills, capability, and regional resiliency as part of the Christchurch earthquake rebuild.
