Sector Knowledge

Following his Bachelor of Biotechnology, Tony spent 9 years in pharmaceutical manufacturing, working his way from Production Technician though Process Technologist, Technical Manager, and Production Manager with a multinational pharmaceutical manufacturer. Tony was heavily involved in up-scaling manufacturing processes and commissioning a new sterile production facility, before moving into recruitment. Tony also had a stint in Medical Device manufacturing working for a start-up (and now well established) business at a senior leadership level. This has given him in-depth knowledge of the technical skills and experience required by companies to help source candidates for their vacancies.

Outside of work, Tony enjoys playing hockey or supporting his daughters in their sports whenever possible. In the warmer months, he and his family will be found tearing up the flat waters of the Pauatahanui inlet or enjoying the surf of the local beaches.

“Tony has successfully assisted our FMCG business on a number of senior technical engagements at short notice. In particular I found his strengths to be around communication, responding at pace with relevant options leveraged from his broad professional network, and navigating effectively through ambiguity as at times he was working to a limited brief. I am grateful for the support Tony has provided our business and as such would highly recommend him as a technical solutions talent partner” – Joanna, Recruitment Manager for a large manufacturer within the FMCG sector.
