Following a successful career in banking and financial services, I’m thrilled to have joined People&co and Co.Star Consulting as the Managing Director and co-owner.

Having been a part of leadership teams for fast paced and dynamic businesses in the financial services sector, I have first-hand experience with the challenge that attracting the right people to your business can pose, and I understand the important role that having the right partner plays in this process.

My career to date has really been centred around people, be they customers or clients, with a key thread being the ability to form great relationships and to put the person I’m working with at the heart of what I do. Moving into the recruitment and consultancy space has felt like a natural transition and this ethos lends itself perfectly to the strong values base at the heart of People&co and Co.Star consulting. I’m the Account Director for People&co and Co.Star Consulting’s place as a panel member for the All of Government recruitment and consulting panels. I’m delighted to play my part in continuing the great work the teams do and bringing new opportunities to the businesses.

With my experience in management and building and leading teams, I’m excited to take over the reins from business founders Michele Walls and Warren Tocker, and to continue working with them over the coming years.

Of Ngāpuhi descent and hailing from Northland originally, I’ve called Wellington home for the last decade. I’m mad about all things motorsport and in my downtime you’ll usually find me pottering around on our small local lifestyle property with my fiancée and our three furbabies, Pickle, Scout and Charlie.
