About Me

My life’s aim is to build global brands that answer the “why” – why we are serving the community, the teams we hire and the customers. I focus on scaling businesses through digital growth and performance, commercial strategies, sales optimisation, product development and optimisation, interpersonal relationships and high-functioning teams. I believe we should always strive to be excellent and rewrite the old playbooks.

I am fixated on constant reinventions, peak performance and optimal efficiency. I am passionate about finance and technology and their abilities to impact lives at scale.
