General Manager - Commercial Development
I currently head the Commercial Development division at Pāmu. We are responsible for leading much of the value-add strategy within Pāmu. My great team has a mixture of technical and commercial practitioners and stretches across the milk, meat, fiber product set, as well as new business development.
I joined Pāmu in January 2016 after living in Melbourne, Australia where I was the Co-Head of the agricultural investment division of a European based, privately owned investment company. Earlier to this I spent time in New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong with a multinational investment bank, eventually becoming the Head of the Agriculture Funds business in Asia. Both roles had me raising capital and investing into the agricultural sector in New Zealand, Australia and South America. Prior to these positions, I held finance roles in New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
I was born and bred in Wellington, then headed to the University of Otago to complete my bachelors and post-graduate qualifications. After being away for over 20 years, my wife and I have returned to Wellington with our two pre-school children.
