Nick specialises in providing solutions for complex calculations. When clients struggle with poor data or difficult concepts, Nick’s expertise is in finding the answers and, just as importantly, in articulating the results in a way that the client and wider stakeholder groups can understand.
Nick has skills and experience in forecasting and planning (including associated modelling), regulatory issues and impacts, financial analysis and review, and costing- and pricing-related assignments. He has worked closely with a wide range of organisations, including private companies of all sizes, SOEs, core government departments and other public-sector agencies.

Before that he spent six years with Comalco New Zealand in business analysis and accounting roles, four years in contract accounting in London, and four years auditing with Coopers & Lybrand in Wellington and Perth.

developing a cost-benefit model for the Department of Building and Housing for the analysis of earthquake-prone buildings policy
a secondment to the Ministry of Health for the development of policy costing models for payments to family carers of disabled people
developing a demand forecasting and staffing model for Christchurch City Council’s building consent department, as part of the earthquake recovery programme
