I have over 30 years experience in the banking and finance industry undertaking management roles in Corporate & Commercial, Business Banking, Operations and Product Management for a number of New Zealand banks.

The last 20 years I have specialised at The National Bank of NZ/ ANZ in Relationship and Sales for Corporate & Commercial customers in the Central Region of New Zealand supporting international cross border trade and transaction banking.

I have proven expertise to create value, solve issues, maximise growth and improve the business performance of the clients across their financial supply chain.

I use my commercial banking knowledge to provide objective advocacy, expertise and specialist skills that companies may lack or not have time to manage.

Clients recognise me as delivering a high level of integrity, professionalism and energy in my methodology. My foccus is to work closely with clients to ensure their business needs are understood and effectively met that results in successful growth.

I established BC4B in April 2013 to help and guide New Zealand businesses as an unique independent in-house banking advocate.

The following is feedback from a client & senior bank management.
