Rural Team Leader

 

My expertise is in agribusiness so a typical day for me is supporting our strong and growing team on those issues and opportunities most pressing for our customers.

DESCRIBE A TYPICAL DAY AT (OR OUT OF) THE OFFICE

I have five kids aged five to 13. My wife is up before dawn, I won’t pretend I am as well! But it’s fair to say life is busy at our breakfast table here in Hamilton.

 

My expertise is in agribusiness so a typical day for me is supporting our strong and growing team on those issues and opportunities most pressing for our customers. That might be support navigating new regulations or help succession planning on the farm.

 

At the end of the day I winddown with my family. I love sport, I’m rugby mad, and if I’m honest I’m a Hurricanes fan!

 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I love the variety and the problem solving. I thrive in a high-octane environment and get a lot of joy out of helping people build their businesses and unlock new areas for growth.

 

WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO RIGHTWAY?

Our customer focus lines up with the way I like to do business. I have always been about the people, not the numbers, and that makes RightWay a perfect fit.

 

Please describe a time when your advice and support really made a difference for a customer

I’ve had a number of customers who, busy getting on with their work, find themselves behind on business planning, finances and administration. That really catches up with you when it involves tax obligations.

 

I worked closely with a customer to mediate a solution with Inland Revenue that got the best possible outcome, mitigating risks of penalties, interest and back payments. I really enjoyed navigating a path through what was a really distressing situation for them and being by their side when they achieved that clean slate and financial freedom again.

 

Describe your happy place

See Greg’s profile. Joking. He won’t let me ride his horse. It’s going to be a beach though, with the family and with a banana milkshake.

 

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING/READING/LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?

I’m really inspired by Dr Nicole LePera. I’m listening to her audiobook How to do the work where she uses her background as a clinical psychologist to talk about how you can live a more joyful life. I am really passionate about wellbeing – it is so important for every aspect of our lives.

 

My kids watch a fair bit of animation, so I have been known to indulge in the occasional episode of Peppa Pig.

 

PRESUMING LOVED ONES AND PETS ARE SAFE, WHAT THREE THINGS WOULD YOU SAVE FROM A HOUSE FIRE?

Honestly - Phone. Wallet. Keys.

 

But if you want to hear from the sentimentalist in me – my kids favourite soft toys – the dog the sloth and the fox, named Brucey, Ally and Sparky.
