For the last 6 years I've worked with my partner Ben Young, growing Young + Shand into one of New Zealand's leading Digital Agencies. Over this time we've managed to grow a team of over 60 people, set up a joint venture development centre in India and get a software startup up and running in New York. 

I've had an interesting career so far, I started life as an accountant but soon realised that all the interesting decisions where happening in the sales and marketing side of the business.

So I waited for the right opportunity, went back to school to get a marketing degree and then spent 20 years working in a variety of sales and marketing roles including, General Manager Sales & Marketing ihug, Sales & Marketing Manager ICPbio and Group Brand Manager at Air New Zealand.
