The company, and in particular my managers at the time, really supported me … They provided training and mentoring, and I emerged a better supervisor as a result, with skills that still serve me well today.
Prior to joining Robert Half, I was a member of the Royal Australian Air Force for nine years, serving as an Aviation Electronics Technician.
First job at Robert Half? Current position?
After my discharge from the RAAF, I took a position as a UNIX Systems Administrator at the corporate service center in California. Seven years later, I came back to Australia to take the Asia-Pacific IT Manager position in Sydney.
Why Robert Half?
The support from my management team, particularly in the early years. The company, and in particular my managers at the time, really supported me during my time in California, which was not without its challenges. They provided training and mentoring, and I emerged a better supervisor as a result, with skills that still serve me well today.
Book on your nightstand?
Two books that could not be more different: Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz and a book on four-wheel-drive tracks close to Sydney!
My family has a retreat property about four hours north of where we live. It borders a nice stream, and my favorite times are spent either working at and maintaining it or relaxing and enjoying it with our two children, our friends and our extended family.
