Chief Information Officer
I started my career before computers were a thing and have enjoyed being part of the digital revolution. It was exciting being part of Telecom’s first computer system implementation - ICMS (Integrated Customer Management System) into New Zealand. I then worked on some global implementations.
We then became a part of EDS, which gave me great exposure to disciplines and methodologies that resulted in my in-depth knowledge of Software Development Life Cycles (both AGILE and Waterfall) and ITIL Quality frameworks, enabling me to deliver exceptional services within many different environments.
With over 20 years of experience in leading Technology teams for companies such as TOWER, Vodafone, Mercury and Downer NZ. I believe I bring a level of sensibility and effective decision making that ensures technology enables business outcomes. I have been able to use my experience and ‘can do' attitude to turn hairy projects around and also to improve the level of service being provided to both internal and external customers. My philosophy on ‘keeping it simple, factual and focused’ has helped in many difficult situations.
