About this Board
Born and bred in Wellington, Daryl is passionate about the prosperity of his home city, the performance of its business sector and of its rugby team, The Hurricanes.
His diverse business background spans more than 35 years including both Wellington and international businesses. He has been involved in a range of sectors from transport to inbound tourism, recruitment to technology-based marketing.
Company Directorships, CEO and Board Chairman positions have given him a wealth of experience in understanding the differences between the governance and operational aspects of a business.
Daryl guided two major companies significantly impacted by the GFC and the Christchurch earthquake from imminent failure to a bright new future. Several businesses Daryl has directed have been recognised as industry leaders, one of which was specifically acknowledged for its contribution to the Wellington economy.
He says “I’m particularly passionate about businesses that recognise their people as being their most valuable asset and helping them lift performance through people-led business growth.”
Outside work, if it has wheels, Daryl will want to drive it or ride it, thanks to his lifetime involvement with motorsport. He adds: “There are many lessons to learn from sport, particularly team performance, that carry over into business”.
