I am a recognised and respected leader in the automotive parts industry with 30 years experience working in Australia and internationally with successful, long-standing relationships and networks.
I have a proven record of achievement in the industry and have repeatedly produced sustained revenue growth while driving change in the market. My success is underpinned by my close working relationships with all the key stakeholders including insurers, repairers, OE dealers and alternative parts suppliers.
I have an unrivalled understanding of the needs of each stakeholder within the supply chain (collision repairer, insurer and supplier) and an ability to build strategic solutions to create value for all parties.
I am an innovative and adaptable leader, evidenced by my ability to work with and across multiple areas of the industry. I have worked with companies ranging from ASX top 20's to family businesses and developed a broad skill set across a diverse client group with a focus on creating win/win outcomes.
For more than a decade, I have been the leading independent advisor to major Australian insurers on alternative parts strategies, including building models that support positive cost outcomes while growing parts margins for collision repairers.
I have pioneered significant and ground-breaking innovation and presented at industry conferences in the USA, Europe and Australia.
I am passionate about the automotive repair industry and strive to share my experience, learnings and successes so together we can build a modern, innovative forward-looking industry that will adapt to changes in technology and continue being relevant, support growth and produce profits for all involved.
