I am a Chartered Accountant and a Manager in the Private Client Services team at EY, working alongside privately owned Canterbury based businesses. The role involves providing professional expertise to enable businesses to operate efficiently, grow and evolve. My previous professional roles in business development and relationship management at multi-national companies including Hewlett Packard and Apple, has provided me the valuable experience in how business works both locally and abroad.
I have been on the Board of the Chamber for the last two years representing the next generation of business leaders. I continue to be driven, passionate and seek to provide a fresh perspective on the future strategy of the Chamber. In addition to being part of the audit and risk committee, I am also a Director of the Westpac Champion Business Awards. I have been actively supporting and attending professional events run by the Chamber and been fortunate to be able to meet so many leaders and doers doing great things in our city.
I am married with two young daughters and enjoy the balance between work and family. This gives me perspective and reinforces my passion to help drive the future success of Christchurch and the wider region.
