Since 2020, Steve has been Director of Next Generation Critical Communications (NGCC) working alongside a high-performing team to develop a new Public Safety Network (PSN) for the emergency services. The PSN is the most significant advance in New Zealand’s public safety communications in decades to benefit our emergency services and all New Zealanders. In July, NGCC delivered the first Public Safety Network service – Cellular Roaming – on budget and on time.
Steve comes from a 25-year career leading transformational change and growth in a range of disciplines and across sectors including financial services, local and central government, banking and energy. He’s at his best innovating, creating change and disrupting the current state to make things better for customers, staff and service users.
A graduate of the New Zealand Leadership Programme, Steve is driven to empower and enable people in all their diversity to fulfil their potential by providing a vision, creating energy and helping to remove barriers. Mentoring others is a passion.
Outside of the office Steve enjoys time with his family, travel, music and moving – whether that’s for fitness or on his Ducati motorbike!
