I advise executives on career transition, particularly focusing on portfolio careers and starting a business.

I joined Directioneering in 2009 as Director of Portfolio Careers – helping executives start their own businesses, join boards and engage in other forms of self-employment.

It is fulfilling to help executives transition from a corporate career to a portfolio career, and with more than 20 years commercial lending experience with 3 of the 4 leading banks, my depth of expertise around commercial operations, business start ups, seed funding, ownership models and business planning and forecasting is substantial. Prior to banking, I also worked with leading sharebroking firms, Randalls and BNZ Norths.

As the Director of Portfolio Careers, I partner with executives providing the expertise, framework and rigour required to ensure clarity for those contemplating self employment. Supported by the Birkman methodology, my practical approach is highly valued by executives formulating their next move.
