Prior to joining Cambridge Partners, I worked as a Business Consultant and Development Manager for a medium sized Business and Innovation Hub based in Hamilton. We provided portfolio management over projects and facilitation and mentoring - supporting business startups to grow and develop.
Over my professional career I have held senior manager roles within both public and private sectors, including regional government, tertiary education, commercial and tribal entities. I am a business consultancy owner, and enjoy helping small businesses succeed by offering them bespoke business solutions.
I am excited about being part of the team at Cambridge Partners, servicing clients out of the Auckland office. I believe it is a real privilege to be able to help clients set and achieve their wealth goals, and I find it incredibly satisfying being part of the journey in supporting client success.
A key quality for any client-facing advisor is having the ability to form meaningful relationships that are client centric. From my experience, clients gain trust and confidence from advisors who genuinely care, understand their needs and are competent in delivering the best outcomes for them.
Another quality is my commitment to learning and development by growing my professional capabilities through applied experience. This value-add enables me to discover new and improved ways to provide a higher quality of service to my clients.
I tend to gravitate towards teams and individuals who share the same values, ethics and approach as myself - like-minded individuals who are committed to providing excellent service backed by a structured research-evidence based investment solutions. This unique value proposition sets Cambridge Partners apart as an industry leader, and I am excited to be part of this environment.
As an individual who identifies as Māori (Waikato) it is critically important to feel welcomed as part of a wider whānau (collective). I appreciate and value the way Cambridge support diversity in the workplace by providing an environment of inclusiveness (whānaungatanga), cultural safety and respect (tikanga, manaaki, aroha). These cultural attributes tend to resonate with all clients, particularly those from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds; nō reira tēnā koutou.
Everyone has their own distinctive opinion on money. As a resource, money requires appropriate management, and when managed well can be a positive contributor towards achieving a desired outcome or goals (individually or collectively).
I am a husband and father of three children, my wife is a Primary School Teacher, and together we enjoy spending time as a whānau-family often sharing time with our wider network of friends and family.
I enjoy working out in the gym to help maintain my health and wellbeing. I proactively engage in Māori economic development initiatives, and I have an academic interest in post-doctoral study in the area of Māori indigenous wealth creation applied research.
