Born in the UK and completing undergraduate studies there, Chris entered HR and worked in a variety of industries including heavy engineering, continuous processing and high volume catering.

His worked spanned remuneration and benefits, executive recruitment and product managing proprietary assessment tools and remuneration surveys.

What Chris is proud of
Receiving positive feedback from my clients and having them re-engage me. I have helped major businesses transform through major change programs. At Mitsui I steered through a major reorganisation bringing two large corporate offices together in one location, including moving corporate head office interstate. This was done on time, in budget and with no disruption to business as usual or customer service. This required redesign of the organisation structure, the roles within it, relocation of some staff, retrenchment of others, new hires both internal and external, all working closely with senior leaders from all corporate functions.
What Chris’s customers say
