Strategic, Commercial and Pragmatic

Rob is without doubt the best CFO I’ve worked with. His down to earth personality despite being a seasoned leader makes him an ideal CFO/CEO in any organisation.  Rob is very strategic in his thinking, very commercial, pragmatic, excellent both from a technical and operational perspective.  He is well respected by the Leadership Team, his colleagues, peers and employees and most importantly knows how to get the job done to a very high standard in a timely fashion, often juggling multiple tasks and always meeting the deadline. He is unwavering in his dedication and loyalty towards all stakeholders and I highly recommend him.

Positive Personality

Rob is one of those exceptional people that only comes along once in a lifetime.  He has made an incredible difference to our business and we have almost doubled our business under his guidance.  I have always found him to be professional, easy to work with, sharp, and able to quickly make a business impact. His positive personality creates an enjoyable work environment and leading to exceptional results. I absolutely would recommend Rob for any leadership role or consulting arrangement.

Invaluable Asset

Rob has helped stabilise and grow our business.  He has a unique combination of CFO & COO operating experience. Not only does he understand the numbers he also understands business. When it comes to strategic planning, establishing goals for organic growth or establishing Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) he has the knowledge and experience necessary to achieve results. He takes the complex world of finance & operations and breaks it down to a simple road map for business leadership. Rarely do you find an individual with Rob’s skill set available to work with small to medium business. Absolutely Brilliant!  An invaluable asset to any business

Simply Perfect

Rob inherited a very difficult set of circumstances when he undertook the role of COO/General Manager at NZQW – He set about to implement a strategic business plan that provided the impetus for all staff to see a way forward for both the plant and business in general in some very challenging circumstances.

I found Rob to be forthright and highly professional in his dealings with both myself and my direct reports with a highly engaging and personalised style that was infectious with enthusiasm.

Rob was always a pleasure to deal with and always took time to assist and advise with any queries, day or night, where ever he was in the world at the time. I would recommend Rob as a Key Driver for any organisation.

Pioneering CFO

Rob was one of Millward Brown’s pioneering, professional CFOs, who helped support the financial growth of Millward Brown from a medium sized research custom research house in Australia, to a regional power player across Asia. CFOs sometimes have a reputation for getting in the way. Rob’s has a reputation for building teams … a numbers man with an affable personality. I would have no hesitation recommending Rob as a trusted advisor.

Outcome Focused Leader, Great Team Builder

Rob and I worked well together, he is a great team builder, an outcome focused executive leader, working strategically to improve the business within Nestle’s Oceania operations. Rob always conducted himself with professionalism and integrity, collaborating well across all business functions. Rob clearly has a keen grasp of business value drivers, helping & mentoring his team through their areas of focus.

To summarise, he is supportive, and through coaching and leading by example, drove high engagement from the team and the business. I would happily work with him again.
