Having worked in Funds Management for four years in London, I relocated to Melbourne in 2009 with my Australian wife and began a career in recruitment, specialising in Financial Services. I joined an international recruitment firm, progressing to Manager of the Financial Services Operations & Specialist team in 2010, partnering with a broad range of clients across Banking, Private Wealth Management, Funds Management, Superannuation and Insurance.
After spending three years within the wealth creation industry, I decided to build on my previous recruitment experience and re-joined the industry in 2011 progressing from Consultant, Senior Consultant to Manager of the Wealth, Banking and Financial Services team for a large Australian recruitment company. Late 2013, I joined Profusion Group as a Senior Consultant and over a 14 month cycle progressively worked to become Associate Director. I am responsible for managing and growing a broad range of client relationships within the Wealth Management industry.
In 2007, I joined Profusion Group specialising in Funds Management recruitment. Partnering with a broad range of clients I have enjoyed working with the big global through to the start-up organisations and strive for everyone who interacts with our business to have a positive experience.
I joined Profusion Group in 2013 as a specialist Banking recruiter. I manage the Banking desk along with Rod Jones (CEO – Profusion Group). I started my Banking & Financial Services career in 2005 and made a career shift to recruitment in 2010. I have five years’ experience within Banking recruitment and has previously worked at QPL Recruitment (Senior Consultant – NSW Banking Team) and ANZ Bank (Various Leadership Roles within Mortgage Operations).
I have 15 years experience in Wealth and Funds Management, having held various roles in Distribution across Client Services, Account Management and Sales for groups such as AMP, AXA, Skandia and Zurich Investments.
Prior to joining Profusion Group I spent 7 years in the Shareholder Services side of the Funds Management world, initially in Luxembourg and the United Kingdom, before moving over to Australia in 2011. Having joined State Street as a graduate, I was selected for a leadership training scheme and quickly moved into middle management.
I emigrated from England in late 2010 leaving behind a career spanning almost eight years in General Insurance Operations – covering a variety of products and roles within a major UK insurer. Upon arrival in Australia I utilised my experience working firstly for an Australian owned insurer based out of WA followed by a major global Insurer in Victoria. This experience allowed me to gain a solid understanding of the Australian Insurance market and a strong referral network.
Originally from the UK I relocated to Australia in 2004 and my first role in Australia was within Telco sales at Optus. I loved working in a customer centric environment and discovered a flair for matching people to products; in 2005 I made a natural progression to the Recruitment industry and spent almost 8 years working for Hallis across a broad range of corporate clients on varied roles, within Financial Services.
While studying my Bachelor of Social Science majoring in Human Resources and Industrial Relations I worked part time as a Sales Consultant within the construction industry, before relocating to Sydney in 2013. My first job in Australia was with QPL Recruitment in a hybrid role before quickly being promoted into a Consultant position, and then joined Profusion Group in January 2014. For both companies I have specialised within Wealth Management Recruitment, enabling me to build a very strong network within this niche market.
I moved to Melbourne in 2011, initially working in the insurance industry before taking an internal recruitment role with Australia Post. I started my agency recruitment career in 2013 working with a national Recruitment Firm specialising in Banking & Financial services across Victoria.

My tenure within this field ensures that I can partner with clients and candidates in confidence and stand out from my competition. I can provide advice and guidance on industry trends and demands and I understand the complexities involved in this sector when compared to others.

A qualified Chartered Accountant with extensive, diversified work experience gained over more than a decade. Having joined Profusion in 2008 as Finance Manager, the role has provided me exposure and knowledge of the business framework in the recruitment industry.
