Carl - CEO

Prior to joining BAYGOLD Limited I worked for a number of large organisations in senior roles including Resene Paints, Ecolab and Fonterra.  I have qualifications in accountancy, law and supply chain and these combined with my wider business background I believe will help drive BAYGOLD’s commitment to achieving excellence in all it does.  I am determined to enhance our customer focus and accountability as well as assisting BAYGOLD reach and exceed its growth aspirations.  When I am not at work I spent time with wife (Rachel) and two children (Rebekah and Annelise) or you can find me running up mountains, ocean swimming or reading a good book!
