“Aaron has a proven track record as a strong accounting and finance professional across multiple dimensions. Technically expert at core accounting, financial management, and reporting processes and also with a breadth of additional capabilities including international and domestic debt facility negotiation and compliance, group insurance policy management, enterprise risk management, and IT system implementations and enhancements. As importantly, a team player with a calm, professional and collaborative style, including under heavy workloads.”
" I had the pleasure of working with Aaron on various projects while he was CFO for Seequent. Very quickly, Aaron became (and continues to be) a mentor. Aaron is a man who easily engages with those who work alongside him and provides a much needed positive attitude to tasks required. He provided me with tools and advice on different ways to look at problems and projects, and encouraged me to step up and dig in! He was a breath of fresh air in his approach to management and allowed me to observe, engage and learn while working with him, and make the less appealing tasks a bit more enjoyable and interesting. I continue to enjoy our conversations, his insight, and banter and I know he will be an exceptional contribution to any company that engages with him.
“I worked with Aaron for over 10 years at General Cable Pacific, a diverse group with operations in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands.
Aaron was a proactive and well liked member of the executive team, displaying astute business acumen and an in-depth understanding of the operational elements of the business.”
"Aaron is a positive influence on the team and constructively challenges his staff to improve systems. His ability to assess different options and quickly summarise the financial impact enables Aaron to lead decision making processes within the business."
"I got to work with Aaron while I was at General Cable and the word that springs to mind is genuine. He is a genuine leader. He takes the time to actually listen to people and support them where he can. He is genuinely great in his role as a CFO. He sees the bigger, longer range picture but can talk the detail and do it in a way that everyone is going to understand. He can genuinely add value to any organisation that he works with and I cannot recommend him enough to anyone who really wants to take their finance team to the next level of performance".
" Aaron is an extremely astute individual who can clearly express to the illiterate in financial terms reasons for and outcomes of the action. Aaron was always a pleasure to work with and was a fantastic team player, never let us down".
"I worked with Aaron from 2005 - 2008 as Director of Compliance with Aaron leading compliance efforts for our Asia-Pacific group. Aaron excelled in bringing the right level of risk assessment to controls development and testing in the early years of SOX. Because of this, Asia-Pacific had the best outcome of the group in that initial year. From that starting point, Aaron continued to challenge process owners to improve controls on a risk basis as well as working with the independent audit firm to reduce the amount of effort to reach a successful audit. It is this kind of balance of accounting and business acumen that led to Aaron's promotion to CFO".
