As head of Ryan + Alexander’s executive search function, I run a rigorous recruitment process. Over the past three years, we have placed recruits of the highest calibre in to a number of impressive roles across regional New Zealand. Our clients include Robotics Plus, Hancock Forest Management and Comvita.
Executive search is my speciality. I have developed a keen instinct for recognising individuals with international-standard expertise who will fit, and thrive, in regional New Zealand. Throughout my 16 year career, I have helped large corporates fill senior roles in London, Singapore, China, Italy, the US and various points between. I have specialised across a number of sectors, including financial services and agribusiness, and been tasked with responsibility for placing senior executives in roles such as CEO, operations and general management.
I was born in Invercargill and raised in Rotorua but have lived and worked around the world – from Japan, to the United Kingdom, to Holland. I returned to the Bay of Plenty in 2013, with my husband and two boys in tow, to work for Zespri International. I managed the company’s mid- to executive-level global recruitment and further honed my instinct for the attributes which set outstanding candidates aside from the pack. In 2016, I left Zespri, and Kiri and I founded Ryan and Alexander Consultancy.
Examples of local clients I have worked with:
- Zespri International
- Planttech Research Institute
- Addiction Foods
- Jace Group
I am a qualified Librarian with several years of experience in research, information and library roles across different sectors in New Zealand and the UK. I have always had an interest in supporting and enabling people to develop their careers and completed my postgraduate certificate in career development through AUT in 2016.
Previously I have worked in the information sector in both NZ and the UK, including research work for global executive search firm, Egon Zehnder. I am passionate about supporting learning and research, and have worked at both the University of St Andrews in Scotland, and the University of Auckland Library as their Research Support Services Manager.
I’m originally from Auckland but moved to the beautiful Bay of Plenty in 2018 with my husband and son. At Ryan and Alexander I work with the team to provide research and sourcing for executive and specialist roles, and recruitment for technical positions. I enjoy getting to know candidates and finding out where they have been and where they want to head on their career journey.
Born and raised in Wellington, my career began in the retail and business banking world, after which I moved into Leadership, Career Coaching and Training Roles. I have been fortunate in being exposed to many different divisions and business units, providing me a broad understanding of business and human resourcing needs, and allowing me to live in various locations across New Zealand. I travelled and lived abroad before deciding to settle in the beautiful Bay of Plenty in 2013.
A real highlight was my work as a career coach in one of New Zealand’s largest corporates, during a challenging time of mass redeployment and redundancies – not only was I able to make a real impact and help over a hundred people find their way through an unexpected change in their lives, but also in discovering a new pathway and mastering the steps required in the job search process. This experience became invaluable in Leadership roles that followed, allowing me to manage through change, build effective teams and motivate others to become the best they could be, by retaining my vision as a supportive, enthusiastic leader working towards the common goals of the organisation.
In 2018, I welcomed the opportunity to join the talented team at Ryan + Alexander, where I began as Candidate Manager assisting and guiding our candidates along their career pathway. Recently moving into an Associate Consultant role, where I continue to work closely with candidates as well as supporting our clients in sourcing the best suited candidate to fill their temporary positions.
