Back to all people
Rory has extensive experience over 30 years as both a consultant and a business executive running large industrial entities in Australia and Europe. He has advised clients across a broad range of industries on a similarly broad range of issues; including business turnarounds, high-value commercial negotiations, mergers and acquisitions, operational efficiency and organisation design. Guiding all his work is a belief that a clear and coherent strategy is the foundation required to build stronger and more profitable organisations.

In his spare time...

A South Coast getaway is Rory’s escape to indulge in all manner of do-it-yourself projects; in addition to walking, fishing, body surfing, diving for lobster and kayaking.
