Account Director

Originally from NZ, I moved to London in 1997 with no real plans other than to travel & gobble up as many cultural & culinary experiences as possible! My UK career soon led me into a number of exciting positions spanning operations, events, business development.

These experiences have provided me with a huge appreciation of the wonderful, creative people that fuel this vibrant industry. Having known Troika for most of my career in the UK, I was excited to join the team in 2017 and have loved every minute I have spent recruiting for the industry I absolutely love – it is my most rewarding role yet!
