“The experiences I’ve gained through my extensive, global career in management and leadership led me to my current work as a leadership and vision consultant for individuals, teams, and organisations. I’m excited to continue to work with my colleagues at Scope on shaping our future, contributing to the growth of our special Te Tai Tokerau Northland Community through successful delivery of infrastructure projects across our burgeoning region.”

With 20+ years of senior management and board chair experience for large, complex organisations, Denis is charged with charting Scope’s course as our Non-Executive Board Chair. Denis’ CV includes time at leading New York global management consulting company JMW Consultants, providing leadership services to support Fortune 500 companies around the globe in achieving extraordinary performance. Upon his return to Aotearoa New Zealand, Denis honed his management skills while CEO at Waitematā District Health Board (DHB) in Auckland and Tai Tokerau Wānanga NorthTec here in Te Tai Tokerau Northland.

Denis’ current work sees him consulting to a broad range of publicly-listed organisations, private firms, and non-profits, helping individuals and teams to envision success and achieve beyond their goals. Outside of his consulting work, he chairs the Te Puna Manawa/HealthWEST board and boards in the project management and professional services space.
