Improvement & Transformation Strategist
B Eng (Hons) B Comm GAICD
With 25 years’ experience as a business improvement and transformation professional, I bring a strong track record and leadership in translating the Board/Owner’s vision into executable strategies to increase profit, efficiency and ensure a sustainable business.
As a commercially astute leader, I have a proven ability to swiftly develop and implement strategic plans, utilising a wide variety of proven methodologies and Blue Ocean thinking. I am able to develop pragmatic solutions and urgently prioritise actions to achieve high impact, low cost, rapid results. I specialise in value driver analysis, the use of visual tools and short interval control processes to re-engineer operations and achieve continuous improvement through hands-on mentoring.
As a skilled negotiator and influencer, I am able to leverage multiple stakeholders’ perspectives based on past roles as a banker/financier, consultant, hands-on manager, company owner and Board advisor – specialising in high urgency interventions, typically associated with rapid growth or decline under Safe Harbour provisions.
From foundations in mechanical and industrial Engineering plus qualifications in Commerce and business turnaround, my career has evolved across diverse industries inclusive of supply chain/logistics, mining, services, manufacturing, FMCG, civil engineering, agriculture and professional services. My experience spans multiple continents and cultures, working in a range of businesses from family owned to listed, multi-nationals with turnover in excess of AU$1bn.
