We're pretty qualified
WE ARE LOCATED IN CHRISTCHURCH's HI-TECH HUB.
As a professional services business we are literally only as good as our people. And it is the diversity of our team that makes it so strong.
With a highly skilled team hailing from New Zealand and seven other nations, we have a depth and spread of experience. In an industry that is male dominated, Concentrate’s 60% female workforce is a super-power.
Prior to starting Concentrate in 2004, I gained extensive experience in the New Zealand technology industry, in senior technical, sales and marketing roles. My career has focussed on helping businesses successfully develop, use or commercialise technology-based products and services. This includes periods working in the United Kingdom and the USA.
My governance experience in the tech industry includes the New Zealand Hi-Tech Trust (responsible for the NZ Hi-Tech Awards), the New Zealand Software Association, Canterbury Tech and Enable Services, the company responsible for building an ultra-fast broadband (UFB) network for Christchurch. I am currently on the board of Sydenham Rugby.
I am a member of the New Zealand Institute of Management and a Chartered Member of the New Zealand Institute of Directors.
Spare time involves family, mountain biking (planning the next epic trip), boating, anything rugby, and completing endless DIY projects.
I am qualified to navigate the oceans via the sun and stars.
As a director of Concentrate, my focus is on growing the business and keeping the office fruit bowl well stocked.
Before I began with Concentrate in 2005, I was a senior manager in various sales and marketing roles at Jade Software Corporation. I have also worked as a consultant for government and corporate public relations firms. Although most of my career has been focused on helping tech companies market and sell their innovations, I’ve also had experience working on capital raising, lobbying and corporate sponsorship projects.
I am involved in sports governance (formerly with Basketball New Zealand, and now with FIBA), and not for profit governance with the Bros for Change Charitable Trust and the Living Springs Trust. A member of the New Zealand Institute of Directors, I have completed the IOD’s Certificate in Company Direction.
Out of work I spend time with my wife and three children, involved in church activities, basketball, slow-motion triathlon and some very average surfing.
I am a former press officer for the Bougainville Revolutionary Army.
Chief Technology Officer
I am the HubSpot Practice Leader at Concentrate. I have extensive experience in a variety of senior sales and marketing roles and have led global marketing programs for large organisations such as IBM, as well as developed and executed business plans and marketing operations for small technology firms including start-ups.
Apart from work, I also enjoy swimming, indoor cricket, tinkering in the garage and intrepid travel with my family.
I am a serial-music-instrument-dabbler, learning and playing a variety of string, wind and keyboard instruments, creating sounds that vaguely resemble music.
Head of Digital Marketing
I bring over 15 years Marketing experience from senior marketing and digital marketing roles in both B2B and B2C businesses. My marketing career to date has involved both strategic planning and delivery with my most recent experience prior to Concentrate, at New Zealand clothing manufacturer, Cactus Outdoor.
I've called Christchurch home for the last 15 years and despite growing up and completing my Degree in Business Management in the North Island, I now well and truly cheer for the Crusaders.
Outside of work I enjoy outdoor activities with my husband and two sons, including wakeboarding, hiking, mountain biking and skiing - and to chill, I enjoy ploughing through the odd book and cooking (although I'm really not very good at that).
I've spent some time volunteering at 'youth at risk' centres in Thailand and Peru.
I bring extensive account management experience to complement Team Concentrate. The majority of my career has been spent in the UK as a business-to-business marketing consultant working within the financial sector, construction industry and utilities market. Moving to Christchurch has afforded me the opportunity to add earthquake repair management to my skillset, courtesy of my previous employment.
Being as I’m “not from round these parts” I am still exploring this beautiful country and take as many opportunities as I can to travel with my family. I must admit, however to still cheering on England at the rugby.
I travelled the length and breadth of New Zealand for 8 months in a campervan before choosing to settle in Christchurch.
Business Development Manager
I joined Concentrate in 2019 and filled the first-ever sales role. That role includes chasing and identifying sales opportunities, and building new and long-lasting relationships with our prospective customers. Throughout my career I've worked across sales and customer service roles, from painstaking door-to-door sales to direct inbound and outbound telemarketing. This has helped me in developing a wide range of sales skills and techniques, and resulted in a proven track record of success.
I've sold hundreds of subscriptions to some of New Zealand's most renowned newspapers and magazines, represented and garnered donations on behalf of the Red Cross, and worked directly with customers in the electricity industry. I enjoy all things sales-related, and as my grandmother would say; it's my bread and butter.
Outside of work, I'm an avid socializer, (as all salespeople tend to be), and enjoy spending time with my friends and family. My interests include traveling, sports, politics, technology, and history.
I grew up as a keen footballer and at one point played consecutively for four different teams, both indoor and outdoor.
Business Development Representative

I have joined Concentrate as a Business Development Representative and am able to leverage four years of previous experience in sales. My responsibilities include contacting potential clients over the phone and via email, identifying new clients and their challenges/needs, and suggesting appropriate products/services for Concentrate to support them.
I graduated in Computer Science and Engineering from India and then completed a Diploma of Computer Science & IT in Auckland. Having always enjoyed talking to people and building relationships, I started my career in door-to-door sales and customer satisfaction. This helped me earn a lot of success and praise from my colleagues.
Aside from all of this, I enjoy watching documentaries, reading books, and travelling to new places throughout New Zealand with my wife.
I’m a fast walker, and the Hokitika Gorge Walk in Hokitika is usually about 45 minutes, though I was able to complete it in just 20 minutes.

Digital Marketing Specialist
I worked as a Marketer in the Business to Business Tech sector for a period of 4 years before deciding to change my career direction into a more technical role. This crazy idea led me all the way to this beautiful country, New Zealand from Sri Lanka, a tiny Island in South-East Asia.
From the day I landed in New Zealand my whole life changed with new experiences and opportunities. As a business major with zero technical expertise, I graduated with a postgraduate qualification in Business Information Systems from the University of Canterbury. With this, I expanded my career opportunities from Marketing to Data Analytics, Business Intelligence and Software QA Testing.
All that in hand, I joined Concentrate as a Digital Marketing Specialist that complements my Marketing and Technical skills and a lot more cool things!
Outside work I’m a singer, a personal fitness enthusiast, and a painter. I love swimming, hiking, and any sport that kicks off some adrenaline!
