Year Joined:
2016

My path to recruitment started somewhat surprisingly, having gone so far as “to put the wig on” through admission as a solicitor to the High Court of NZ and then realising the law really wasn’t for me (practising it that is!). I joined Potentia in January 2016 and have worked in recruitment for four years specialising in digital and data.

I enjoy the challenge of connecting the right person with the right organisation and not only match people to the roles we are recruiting for but also facilitate introductions with firms they are well-suited to working for.

Fun fact:
My full name can fit on a number plate (I have no middle name!)

On the weekend I’ll most likely be...:
With my son & family, on the golf course, on the squash court or outside drinking a craft beer in the sun

Weirdest travel destination:
Does visiting Gloriavale count? Strange place.

Role specialisations:
Recruitment of all things Digital & Data (including but not limited to data analysis, data science, digital marketing, research, ux design and digital transformation roles)

Tech I couldn’t live without:
The internet.

Craziest Client quote:
“Guy, your candidate has just smashed up our office – how do you think it’s going?”

Weirdest food eaten:
Smoked Horse Meat

On my iPod:
Anything around 174BPM
