A born and bred Cantabrian, I am passionate about the South Island and NZinc and excited by the opportunity this Island has to offer local residents, NZ and the world. A key part of viable South Island cities and towns is having great employment opportunities backed by entrepreneurs and strong stewardship. Recently joining the in the Investment Team within New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, my role is to build the capability of New Zealand companies to prepare and pitch for capital, and to connect New Zealand companies with investment and global investors with New Zealand investment opportunities. I'm passionate about business and innovation and am actively involved in the local business community, through the startup eco-system, volunteer work, local government associations and the Canterbury Club.
With particular strengths in relationship building, capital raising and new business acquisition, I can offer a unique set of skills to organisations looking to secure capital for growth and other opportunities. I am passionate about the role the South Island will play in the future development of New Zealand’s economy and have built rapport and trusted relationships with business and industry leaders, including local and central Government, regional economic development agencies, iwi, community organisations and other key stakeholders in NZinc.
Areas of speciality:
