He is well known for providing insightful, well-thought-out advice to Boards and Chief Executives – whether it applies to national and international executive searches or complex projects that build senior leadership teams.

From there he transitioned to management consulting working initially in a New Zealand-owned international search firm, where he was rapidly appointed as a Director.
