I have more than 20 years’ experience within the franchising sector here in New Zealand and Australia. This experience has been through a progression of roles with Aramex (formerly Fastway Couriers) and has given me a true appreciation and clear understanding of some of the issues faced by Franchisors and Franchisees throughout the country, and across the globe.
Most recently I was CEO of Aramex New Zealand, I was responsible for a brand that now has over 350 franchisees and staff that operate from 18 locations throughout New Zealand. We also had some 20 New Zealand-based Aramex subsidiary companies that I held directorships with, so I understand governance and a board’s responsibility.
My experience from being part of a company that was an early adopter of the franchising model here in New Zealand, that then exported to several global markets, allows me to provide a balanced perspective and understanding of franchising in an ever-evolving marketplace.
I look forward to making a positive contribution to the ongoing development of Franchising in New Zealand over the coming years.
