From a long career in banking and now as Deloitte’s Head of Debt Advisory, I have always been driven by a desire to assist businesses to achieve their goals thrive and succeed and the recognition that finance plays a critical role in this.

My role is to further strengthen Deloitte’s debt advisory offering, leveraging my wide network of corporate and bank connections, deep understanding of the bank and capital markets, loan structuring, credit process and the key drivers for lenders in the New Zealand market. The New Zealand banking market is getting increasingly challenging and my role is to assist corporates navigate the debt markets to fully assess all the options, find the right funding solutions and the right (long term) lending partners.
