Executive Vice-President International Region, Medela (SG)
Despite not living in NZ for almost 17 years, I'm still intensely proud and parochial about New Zealand’s thought Leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurialism which has always been part of our cultural fabric. I am aware of the value and benefits I gained from my upbringing in New Zealand and have a desire to give back to the country in some small way. If I can do so through my commercial experience and assisting NZ companies grow globally and employ more New Zealanders, I would be intensely proud and honoured to do so.
I was born in Auckland, New Zealand and grew up on the North Shore where I was educated at Westlake Boys High School. I attended Auckland University, obtaining two undergraduate degrees (Bcom, BProp) and then worked in Exxon Mobil’s graduate recruitment program. In 2003, I moved to Sydney Australia to start a career in Procter and gamble and then Medtronic. I met my wife Kate in Sydney and we were married in 2009 and have two children – Tayla (10 years old) and Thomas (5 years old ). In 2016 , we moved as a family to Singapore to take up a new adventure and cultural experience.
I have recently been involved with the Chamber of Commerce and also the Bro Town touch team, being in the committee and organizing new corporate sponsorship.
