Business Development Director

Steve Shimwell

“I enjoy creating order out of chaos. My background includes startup management roles in Foreign Exchange, Mortgage Broking, Petfood Manufacturing, and IT consulting. Systems are the lifeblood of any business and are the only way to produce predictable results that satisfy customers, stakeholders and staff. Business Development is the process of ensuring those systems are built and maintained”. Steve can also be found manning the pumps when there are inevitable exceptions to the systems!

When not tied to his desk, Steve enjoys family time and outdoor pursuits, especially sailing and tramping.
