I have many years of wide-ranging management and financial executive experience, in both the corporate sector experience (as a Director and CEO of a NASDAQ listed IT company) and with early-stage businesses looking to scale rapidly, both domestically and in international markets (including roles as a Director, Advisory Board Member, financial consultant and part-time CFO).
I'm particularly skilled and experienced in the areas of finance, business planning, forecast preparation, capital raising, corporate governance, investor relations, social media and other digital strategies, as well as having additional senior management operational responsibilities.
This experience is particularly relevant to companies looking to grow rapidly, or needing to undergo significant change.
As Regional Director, New Zealand, for The CFO Centre I am part of an international team of vastly experienced, highly qualified and very skilled CFOs, who can assist companies, in a part-time capacity, to provide a level of capability that otherwise might be cost prohibitive, if on a full-time basis.
My own experience is backed up with relevant professional qualifications achieved in past academic studies.
In my spare time, I am an avid sports fan and active competitive participant over the years in football, rowing, running, duathlon, triathlon - and represented New Zealand in the latter two disciplines at ITU Age Group World Championships in past years.
These days I am competing in cycling (road, time trials and track) and have represented New Zealand at UCI Masters World Champs and also had success in winning New Zealand National Age Group Championships on the road and on the track.
