He originally started as a developer in business intelligence before eventually becoming a business analyst, gaining his Certified Business Analysis Professional™ (CBAP®) qualification in 2015.
Of particular interest to Phil is

  • leading and developing deeper partnerships with industry and educational institutions in New Zealand

Phil understands the value of learning and teaching through the IIBA, having taught many students through running IIBA Accelerators Study groups and has been a capability lead in charge of over 50 business analysts.
"I consider this an absolute honour to represent the needs of the New Zealand BA profession through the IIBA. I want to make the most of this opportunity to get study groups working again across New Zealand, including remote areas. I also want people to reach out to us at the IIBA for help - we have a strong network to truly support BAs regardless of geography, level of knowledge and meeting people face-to-face through IIBA meetup groups."
