I was born in Edmonton, Western Canada in 1942. I entered the Insurance Industry as a Sales Agent in 1969 and held a variety of positions in the industry until 1980.

1973 Halifax - Sales training

1977 Halifax - Assitant Manager

1978 Montreal, Head office - Training Director

1980 Toronto Head Office - Regional Training Directory

In 1986 I became the regional Director in both Philippines and Hong Kong and the Director of Field and Management Development in Boston, 1985. My wife Jennifer and I returned to New Zealand in 1988 and in this same year co-founded Sovereign Insurance. In 2000 I was also the co-founder of OnepPath's Clublife. 

In 2004 I set up 'Riverstone Financial Services', where I hold the position of Managing Director and to this day I am still actively involved in the business, with my son, Mike, managing the day to day operations. 

I have three children - Mike, Emma and Alex. Family is extremely important to me and I take great pleasure in both my children and grandchildren.

Between meeting with clients we do some skiing in the mountains, cruising around the world with friends, beaching with family and generally keeping busy. Both Jennifer and I are fascinated with the rapidly changing world around us especially the ability to keep touch with friends, family and business associates at the touch of a finger.
