TEC Chair: Chief Executive Program

‘My own experience as a member demonstrated the enormous benefits TEC offers to its members to learn and grow as leaders.  As a Chair we are privileged with building and facilitating a strong cohesive group who share their experience, learn, encourage and support each other on their journey to being better leaders and growing their businesses.  It would be very satisfying watching members develop.’

I’m a transformational leader with over 20 years’ CEO/MD  level management experience, building key energizer affiliates into highly competitive, FMCG market leaders.  Being highly practical, I’m always aware of striking the right balance between long-term strategic viewpoints and day-to-day detail.  I strongly believe in the link between the right strategies, culture, capabilities and processes to achieve profitable and sustainable growth.

My most recent role was RVP Oceania for Energizer Holdings, an executive leadership role, tasked with driving profitable and sustainable growth for Australia, New Zealand,  Philippines and South Africa businesses, with sales of over $400 million.  Key achievements included championing transformative cultural change across all business units; consistent sales, profit and market share growth in all markets; successful integration of acquisitions.

Most recently, I’ve led a number of Asia wide projects including developing an Asia wide accelerated growth plan, transformational cost reduction and ultimately the split of the organisation into two companies.

With a degree in industrial engineering, I’ve held previous roles in industrial engineering, production management, supply chain management and marketing.
