I am a professional director with extensive Chair experience.

This experience includes company Chair and committee Chair roles, on organisations ranging from small CCO's to companies of significant scale.

Experiences in governance and as a Chief Executive within private and public sector organisations illustrate a skill set appropriate for overviewing the strategic, risk, health and safety, financial, compliance and operational aspects of organisations as Chairman.

I understand the importance of a high-performing board and how this can best be achieved by a board which embraces collaboration with robust debate. This approach, within organisations with multi-million dollar trading statements and balance sheets, has consistently contributed to outcomes which are beneficial for the organisation and shareholder.

My broad commercial background also lends itself to fulfilling Chair and leadership roles in overviewing and supporting the executive level. This can be in a facilitation capacity when focusing on organisational strategy; in a leadership role when reviewing structure and systems requirements; and in a coaching / mentoring role to support organisations which have undergone growth and have teams that are new to executive management.

My experience has been recognised through being a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Directors in New Zealand (CFInstD), a Member of the Business Leaders' Health and Safety Forum and a Member of RiskNZ. These memberships provide professional credibility through their vetting and continuing professional development (CPD) processes.

The personal ethics I bring include honesty, transparency, discretion and a belief in a strong Health and Safety culture. It is these attributes which have seen me work successfully across a range of stakeholder groups including private enterprise, Crown, District Council and Runanga to advance the best interests of both my respective organisations and the community.

Study and training, combined with business experience in the area, provide me with a comprehensive understanding of governance responsibilities.
