Corporate Governance & Independent Directorships

Director-level Commercial Leadership, Strategy & Performance Experience

Currently I sit on two boards: TruScreen Medical, Cannasouth Bioscience Group, and I am Interim CEO for TruScreen Medical.
I also offer over 20 years of Commercial experience – gained in New Zealand, Australia and the Asia Pacific region in the health, pharmaceutical and medical sectors.
Very few boards have this depth of Commercial expertise to draw on, to provide truly effective governance.

If your organisation or client is looking for fresh talent, diversity and Commercial expertise on the Board - let’s have a conversation.
