I am a proud Dunedinite, so being able to contribute to my community through the work we do helps me serve my community and align with my values. Connecting people, businesses and communities to reach common goals is a big part of my skillset. The ability to listen and then help connect the dots for success based around desired outcomes and goals is what I do best. I have 20 years of banking experience through NZ across residential and corporate/business banking, mainly in leadership, dealing with clients and businesses to help them achieve goals or set out plans to achieve goals. Prior to WFCD, my last role was leading a health and social local service covering the Otago region. I was born and raised in Dunedin from parents who immigrated from Samoa and Niue and I am all about my family, my beautiful wife and kids and extended whanau here in Dunedin - which there are plenty of!
