I am currently Operations Manager at HamiltonJet, having moved to New Zealand just over 3 years ago. Alongside my Operational role and experience I am a Chartered Quality Professional and a Health & Safety Professional. I have global experience, having worked in Oil & Gas roles , based in Aberdeen in Scotland. I have also been an independent Board Director for a not for profit organisation in Angus in Scotland that provided leisure and cultural services to the community. 

I am passionate about Christchurch and we are lucky to call the area home. I believe the role of the Chamber board member is to provide governance and strategic direction for the Chamber. As a community, we have the ability to shape not just the economic future for Christchurch , but also to ensure we build a strong stable foundation for the next generation of Canterbury businesses and their staff. The role of the Chamber is pivotal in ensuring we remain as a strong single voice.

I live in New Zealand with my wife and our pets who keep us busy. We love to travel and explore New Zealand and look forward to our regular visitors from back in Scotland to show off this wonderful country. Along with everything else, I am currently studying  towards a Master’s in Business Administration with Otago University.
