I have always been drawn to opportunities where I can contribute to growth but in a way that raises the bar for client service in the industry. In BMS I see exactly that. I’m delighted to be joining the team and look forward to supporting the drive to further build on BMS’ impressive record of delivering innovative risk solutions to companies that form the backbone of New Zealand’s economy.”
