Company: Flexo NZ Ltd

Personal Profile:
I have over 30 years of experience at board level involving governance in my own businesses as well as large NZ and overseas owned companies. Board governance requirements vary from company to company and especially around who owns the company. NZ privately owned companies’ governance focus often slides towards operational issues because of the lack of specialist skill sets within the organisation, while corporate companies have more access to resources, skill sets organisationally and will be more disciplined and focused on short- and long-term governance issues. Irrespective of these factors H&S remains as a main governance issue for all NZ companies. I have been involved at governance level in improving risk management oversight, assessing innovation and emerging competition, confirming/establishing company strategy, achieving regulatory compliance, leadership succession planning and global compliance, board effectiveness around budget/resource constraints, conflicts of interest, compromised board’s due to an overrepresentation of controlling shareholders, IT investments and how digital does a company get with associated protection from system hacking etc, data storage and optimising company finance returns through performance evaluation and succession planning. Covid pandemic planning. Basically, governance over all practices, processes, and policies to guide the business in the right direction. I come with a very strong background in company operations, business development and product and service innovation.
