General Manager Performance and Growth
Peter had 18 years’ experience as a lawyer in London before immigrating to NZ in 2010. On arrival he joined a QFE, qualified as an AFA soon after and successfully grew its legal base.
His legal mind and relationship skills will be a great asset to the Newpark family in this ever-changing landscape. Peter (the ‘tall guy with the tie’) is passionate about ensuring that New Zealanders have the best insurance possible and, to this end, is committed to helping advisers to navigate their way through the new regime whilst growing their businesses and simplifying process wherever possible.
Adviser Relationship Manager
Cheryl is the longest serving member of the Newpark team having started in 2002. She is passionate about what she does and enjoys working closely with the Advisers in their business.
Prior to joining Newpark, Cheryl spent five years working for State Insurance as Customer Relationship Manager. In her spare time she enjoys a little bit (lot) of retail therapy.
Adviser Success Manager
Steven has a passion for providing advisers with easy to use technology solutions that can be used in sales engagements, whether it’s a first up fact find needs analysis or actually signing up the business at point of sale. With over 25 years’ experience Steven started working in the New Zealand Insurance industry in 1994.
His nickname of “Moses” came from rolling out over 150 tablets to advisers, where the value add was simply being able to use a pen opposed to a keyboard and mouse. In fact, many of these tablet users virtually eliminated paper in their business. Steven also has a wealth of knowledge with CRM and being able to work anywhere anytime using wireless technology to manage potential business through to the sales pipeline.
Technology plays such a large part in all aspects of our business and it is a key part of everything that we do these days. In his role as a Business Development Manager, he is focused on assisting members to generate leads, increase activity, fill their diary and maximise their bottom line by working with you to come up with new ideas, so you know your numbers and can maximise your businesses growth potential.
