Ray recently founded CIO Studio to help Kiwi businesses make sense of Digital Strategy. At executive leadership and governance level, I have over 30 years of management and consulting experience spanning several sectors including healthcare, technology, manufacturing and logistics, leading diverse and multi-organisational teams of 100’s of people.

Setting and communicating clear vision and purpose, I build relationships, influencing direction and decision making both within and outside of my direct reports, across organisations and clients, leading turn-around, growth, client and talent acquisition. Through being skilled at understanding how technical matters relate to commercial and other risk factors I’ve successfully led specialists through the challenges of technical complexity, product development and commercialisation.
