Following several years in finance both in NZ and the UK, I moved into roles as an export manager, managing a large tourism company and then managing a multiple factory 24/7 manufacturing group.

This was followed by a number of consultancy roles including restructuring assignments mainly in Local and Central Government... and then, for a real change, the purchase of a manufacturing SME in the construction sector.

For the last 25 years I have continued working for myself in restructuring and strategic planning roles and have also undertaken a number of short-term chief executive roles for companies facing challenges or going through a transition period.
