Where I'm From: Tawa, Wellington.

My professional background: I've been a CFO for 20+ years, most of that time for a manufacturing company in Miramar, Wellington.  Since they moved away from Wellington I have worked in the Public Sector with MPI and REANNZ (a crown owned company), as CFO, where I learnt about AOG procurement rules and other Government governance customs.  I also spent years working for Revera Ltd (now owned by Spark) in both Wellington and Auckland.

Why I’m passionate about my role at Beyond Recruitment: In my role I get to work directly with the shareholders and directors who’ve created and led this business from the beginning. I also get to work with my team; a bunch of dedicated hard-workers who enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done and some fun along the way. 

What not many people know about me: Both my parents come from large families, so I grew up with almost 100 first cousins, and I was the youngest.  I enjoy following sport and especially the All Blacks. I've been to four Rugby World cups and final matches.

What I love about Aotearoa, New Zealand: The people!  Our sense of humour and sense of fair play.  I have recently started walking the great tracks (Kepler, Heaphy and Milford under my belt so far) and on those walks I feel proud to be a New Zealander and living among the natural bird life, streams and bush.

What I love about Beyond Recruitment: I love that this is a successful New Zealand business whose work improves lives of New Zealanders. Our culture is values based, and well aligned with my own values based on integrity, team first, and great customer service.​
