Executive Brief

A few years ago, this question got a hold of me…

“What if I could combine my passion for investing with my extensive sales experience?”

I’m doing quite well where I am so I tried to ignore it but it wouldn’t let me go. As I started to accept the idea, the question began to evolve… Now I’m asking myself…

“What could I accomplish by committing the rest of my life to being the most valuable BDM in the financial services industry?”

My question has become my quest. Now, I’m bringing my love for people, my passion for investing and over two decades of experience in sales, marketing and leadership to an iconic Australian fund manager. I’m showing up now in response to the marketing and sales executives’ most pressing question;

“How do we increase market share and drive new investment revenue in a rapidly shrinking sector against exceptional competition?”

With decades of experience as a career professional BDM, tough gigs like that are my specialty. What sets me apart comes down to three things…

  1. My ability to quickly acquire the deep technical knowledge that is required for success.
  2. My experience studying with world-class sales mentors.
  3. My uncommon work ethic and ability to sustain high output over time and distance.

This is what has allowed to me achieve outstanding results and produce remarkable value for my clients and employers as you’ll see below.

If you’re looking for a BDM and feel I could be a valuable addition to your team, let’s make time to catch up and talk about your needs and the value I bring to see if we could be a good fit or not.

From the late 90s, building a career based on outcomes and an income based on sales commissions, you learn pretty fast how to get results… or you starve! 

Qualifying, pitching and closing are like breathing for me. What I’ve learned is that, when it comes to marketing and sales, there are only two factors that really matter…


On the phone and in face-to-face appointments, I crushed it. Then, as the world changed and the digital revolution took hold, I recognised the opportunity to achieve disproportionate results by implementing highly leveraged lead generation and conversion strategies. 

For a full decade from 2010, I focused on the strategies that produce the biggest bang for the buck… Event Promotion, Video Production and Social Media Marketing. I also learnt how to build high-performing teams and run highly profitable campaigns. 

From there I started sharing what I’d learnt. I reached hundreds of business owners through my live events and thousands more online. I showed them how to implement these powerful strategies to achieve disproportionate results in their own businesses.

Post COVID, I’ve noticed the pendulum swinging back the other way. Highly leveraged, online strategies are not delivering the results they once did and the costs are higher than ever. Prospects are craving genuine connection, meaningful relationships and real people they can trust. Phone calls and face-to-face appointments have made a strong comeback and I believe will continue to produce stronger ROIs than digital tactics for the foreseeable future. 

Anticipating this trend, in 2020 I went back to commission sales in the building and construction industry. I personally closed over $13.5m in new revenue in the 21-22 financial year and I quickly became the #1 consultant by contracts signed and paid, with the #1 residential builder in Australia. 

Now, content with my 3-year retail construction experience, I’m moving back to wholesale, B2B sales and bringing my love for people, passion for investing and over two decades of experience in sales, marketing and leadership to a leading Australian fund manager. 



Early Life

On my fifth birthday, I remember an auntie asking me what I wanted to be when I grew up… Without hesitation, I shot back, “I’m going to be a businessman!”

I have no idea where that came from – perhaps stories of the wealth and power of media tycoon, Kerry Packer or business magnate Rupert Murdoch. Maybe it was a family friend, Mr Rylance who had a mansion in north Brisbane. I knew they were rich because my friend (his son) had a racing car bed and when I had sleepovers, we got to watch Transformers and eat Fruit Loops on Saturday mornings! Maybe it was because my mum and dad told me we couldn’t afford the remote control car I desperately wanted. Or maybe it was destiny.

Whatever it was, my desire to be in business, do deals, accumulate assets and build wealth is as strong today at 43 years old as it was at 5 years old.

In high school when my mates were looking for jobs at our local Hungry Jacks and KFC for pocket money I had already had a paper run for years and was selling my neighbours my lawn mowing and dog washing services. When I wasn’t working I was playing the piano, running bible studies or at the skate park, shredding on my rollerblades and BMX.

My real education started when I left school and got into sales. I left high school as soon as I could and entered full-time sales at age 16. I loved sales and I’ve sought out and been blessed with many great coaches, mentors and guides along the way. 

John C Maxwell, Og Mandino, Brad Sugars, Bob Proctor, Brian Tracy, Robert Kiyosaki, Tony Robbins, Graham ‘Skroo’ Turner, Wayne Berry, Wayne Dyer, Roy McDonald, George S Clason, Gulliver Giles, Roger Hamilton, Paul Dunn, Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk, Jordan Belfort, Mike Weinberg and many, many more.

Family Life

Opportunities moved me to Sydney then to Melbourne then eventually back to Brisbane where I was worked as an accredited mortgage broker before heading off around the world. LA, New York, Dublin, London, Paris, Zurich and eventually Stockholm where in 2006 I met a beautiful Swedish woman, Minna, who is still the love and joy of my life today. (It’s been said that Minna is the greatest proof of my ability to close high-stakes sales!

After a Christmas holiday in Australia together, we went back to Scandinavia and started our family together. Our identical twin girls’ Laura and Katya were born in October 2007. While the girls were young, mum and dad came to visit and we got to explore Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Nederlands and Spain. I still remember when Facebook’s initial international expansion found us we were living up in the mountains in the middle of Norway!

After the twin’s first birthday, we moved to the Gold Coast to enjoy some much-needed sunshine. Our little man, Jack came along in December 2009. Then in January 2014, we moved again, this time to Bali. Apparently, the Gold Coast wasn’t sunny enough for us!

We had a remarkable three and a half years based in Indonesia with regular trips to Singapore. We built an amazing life for ourselves with a mix of challenging but rewarding business, yoga, meditation, beach resort lifestyle and too many adopted street dogs to count! We met so many wonderful people and made many beautiful life-long friendships. By the middle of 2017, it was time to come back home to Brisbane. 

Personal Life

I felt I’d come full circle, back to where it all began. But I wasn’t who I was back then. I’ve grown and matured. 

Living in such diverse climates and cultures has taught me tolerance and appreciation and conditioned me to be calm in the face of uncomfortable change. Above all, it’s given me a deep appreciation for how blessed we are to call Australia home. It’s certainly not perfect – as my old mentor used to say, “the biggest room in the world is the room for improvement.” – but it is truly wonderful.

Through it all, I’ve looked after my body by eating and sleeping well and staying active. Mountain biking and weight training have kept me fit and strong and I’ve been blessed with great health. 

At 43 years young I feel like I have the energy and vitality of a man half my age. I’m primed with passion and purpose for the next chapter of my life.

Brisbane is home for us now. It will be 2028 before the kids have all finished school and probably off to uni, so we’re certainly not going anywhere anytime soon.
