It is my privilege to have been elected on the National list as a Member of Parliament in the 2014 General Election.
I believe deeply in the values that New Zealand was built upon and which will continue to make us strong; these are the values that the National Party stands for.
I will be working hard for you and our communities inside Parliament.
Prior to the election, I worked in the Wellington ICT industry for more than 20 years, starting my career in a technical infrastructure role. For the past 16 years, I have held Sales and Account Management positions, where I have helped client organisations large and small harness the power of technology to achieve valuable business benefits – through improved efficiency, better customer service, cost reduction, deeper customer insight and better customer engagement.
My career has been founded on my ability to solve problems. It’s all about being able to listen to clients, understand their challenges and articulate options. This builds a long-term relationship founded on trust, demonstrable value and business success on both sides.
My roles all required strong personal interaction and communication skills. I am an excellent communicator with particularly strong skills in developing and articulating potential solutions. This is backed by a strong belief in the importance of preparation.
