Executive Roles

Director

Servilles

January 2004 - December 2007 (3 years)

The founder of Servilles, Paul Serville, made contact with the comment that "the Company was achieving significant revenues however it wasn't translating into bottom line results. Although hairdressing was totally different to import/marketing/distribution, after a quick analysis, basic accounting, budgeting and goal setting criteria were either not evident or totally misrepresented. The remedy was to set new goals, introduce an new Point of Sale accounting system, and understand the drivers of the business. After 3 years and the appointment of a new CEO, the business flourished and the business sold non core activities (Servilles Spa) and purchased an additional Hairdressing School to make Servilles the significant Hairdressing Academy in NZ.

Managing Director

Monaco Corporation Ltd & Transmark Corporation Ltd

September 1978 - December 2000 (22 years)

I secured the NZ Distribution rights of CASIO and started MONACO from scratch. From a zero base in 1978 sales revenues grew to NZ$120 million in 2000 by the addition of Distribution Agreements with PIONEER, TOSHIBA, NINTENDO, TDK, WHARFEDALE and the acquisition of the Australian Distributor for CASIO and AIWA. Moyes & Groves, a listed Company purchased MONACO I became Managing Director of the publicly listed Company & the name Moyes & Groves was changed to Transmark Corporation Ltd. In May 1986, Transmark purchased the CASIO Distributor in Australia, Mobex Pty Ltd. The limited number of shares on issue and the liquidity of the shares meant that there was no real market for the shares and in 1997 I led the delisting of the Company by privatising TRANSMARK. Group Sales revenue was approximately NZ$120 million and 160 staff. In December 2000 I retired from the Company
