Beginning as a Recruiter I evolved into the position of MD whereby I led a period of growth for the company from is single office operation in Wellington, NZ, to open offices in Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne and London. A sale of our company into the Vedior Group followed and we rebranded to Sapphire Technologies and expanded the group to include Brisbane through a merger. After leaving Sapphire I remained in Australia acting as an advisor to a number of firms in Sydney.

We then returned to NZ in 2005 where we are currently based and have founded two new start up recruitment companies. One is a specialist legal play www.simplylegal.co.nz and the other is an IT specialist www.920.co.nz in partnership with www.momentum.co.nz

Curently my other interests include an investment in sports production company Feverpitch Productions and my role as Board Member of Team Wellington in the NZFC.
