I am an experienced senior manager with Mercury, responsible for its wind and wider generation development portfolio for over ten years. This includes having overall management responsibility for securing land access and consents for the Puketoi wind farm project and more recently the procurement, contracting and construction of the 60-turbine Turitea wind farm near Palmerston North.
I have been a (board-appointed) director of NZWEA for the past year. I also served almost two years as a director of Metrix Limited, Mercury’s metering business (now sold).
Prior to joining Mercury I spent approximately a decade in M&A, strategy and corporate finance advisory roles. I hold a BCom (Hons) with first class honours in Finance from the University of Auckland.
