You’ll be reporting to Rhod Thomas, our Chief Customer Officer.

I am originally from Wales; with a love for rugby, rolling hills and good beer, the only other place in the world I was ever going to settle-down was going to be New Zealand! Even though I now call this place home, my background is in Management Consulting and I have been very fortunate that this has allowed me to work all over the world with a wide range of organisations. I have come to realise that working on challenging problems, having variety, and working with smart, driven people are really important for me to be happy and successful in work. Therefore, I thrive in collaborative environments, I love a good methodology and do my best thinking at a whiteboard with a pen in hand. Outside of work, I try to get out on the water as much as possible and am happiest with a fishing rod in hand, catching dinner for family and friends.
