GM Commercial - Active Living at Fonterra


My family and I relocated to Singapore 2 years ago, and despite the challenges of Covid, we have immensely enjoyed the lifestyle and the long-term connections we have made through the NZ Chamber and the broader community.  

I am an experienced Commercial Manager who has worked in FMCG, Financial Services, Telecommunications and Media sectors in the UK, Singapore and New Zealand.  I’ve been with Fonterra for over 10 years, with a clear theme across my various roles to drive activities which deliver sustainable value for the Co-op.  I have a passion in enabling others to achieve their strategic and every day goals, of being a part of a business which has aligned values to mine, and delivering a strategy which ultimately aspires to make a difference. 

My current role as General Manager (Commercial) for the Active Living business unit reinforces these characteristics, where I am part of a great leadership team focused on delivering health and wellness dairy ingredients & solutions from NZ to large brand owners across the globe. 

I have a Bachelor of Business Studies from Massey University (majoring in Accountancy and Sports Management) and I am a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants (CA).

I am a passionate Kiwi, and I would welcome the opportunity to further grow and foster the New Zealand community of people and businesses here in Singapore.
