Dave arrived in NZ in 2002 with extensive operational experience in fast-moving consumer goods manufacturing, having worked at Nutricia and Northern Foods in the UK. In New Zealand, he further honed his Continuous Improvement skills at Heinz Wattie’s and Fonterra.
Dave’s fresh but experienced eyes have a keen sense of ‘what good looks like’, especially in any critical hygiene operations area. This ability enables him to point to productivity improvement opportunities that are often missed by others. He seldom leaves a manufacturing setting without offering a tangible improvement, whether it be a subtle change in the line set-up or a complete overhaul of the production process.
Dave’s infectious passion for improvement opportunities rubs off on anyone who works with him. He has a proven ability to develop and nurture a continuous improvement mindset in teams and operational leaders and gets real satisfaction out of coaching people to see them grow and blossom.
Dave is excited about the opportunity to work alongside NZ businesses and to be a part of their improvement journey.
