My principal place of residence is in the Blenheim Ward area.
My grandparents arrived in Marlborough in 1896. Born here, and lived in Blenheim all my life, married Vivienne in 1972, and been a Chartered Accountant since 1977.
My governance experience includes various Public listed Company Boards as Chair or Finance Chair. I was Finance Director of NZ Rugby Union for 8 years and Highlanders Franchise for six. Community service includes Church and Round Table Service Clubs- elected National President of that organisation and served 5 years as Secretary-General of its World Body.
I fully understand Governance principles and the importance of good governance. I can work with anyone and believe strongly in principles of healthy debate, teamwork, collective responsibility and respect for an individual.
Passionate about Marlborough, if elected I would use my skills to the best of my ability for the betterment of Marlborough and to ensure finances are used wisely and affordably.
