Spotlight on ... Dr Wayne Beilby, PMG's Independent Director

 

In September 2017, Dr Wayne Beilby joined our growing team as Independent Director to the Group.  Born and bred in Tauranga, Wayne brings to the team extensive management and governance experience in the financial services industry, both in New Zealand and throughout the Asia Pacific region.  

For 15 years, Wayne was part of the executive leadership team for Tower Insurance, including CEO of Tower in Papua New Guinea, and is now managing director of Pacific Advisory Services, a company that provides consultancy advice in a number of areas including governance and risk and asset management.  He has a Doctorate in Corporate Governance and is a Lawyer by profession.  

“I see a lot of genuine care and personal drive by the team to achieve results for clients.  It’s definitely one of the reasons the group performs so well.”

PMG CEO, Scott McKenzie, says Wayne brings a wealth of knowledge in finance, compliance and governance to PMG’s Board and his appointment is part of PMG’s growth strategy.

“In the last 2 years, PMG has grown steadily with a number of successful, large capital raises and property acquisitions, in a sector which has become increasingly regulated. We are delighted to have had Wayne join the governance team of PMG as we continue to grow and build the wealth of our investors and contribute to New Zealand’s productivity,” says Scott.

Wayne decided to join the group because he saw a local company doing well in the funds management space nationally which represented a great fit with his personal kaupapa (values/principles). 

In the five months since joining, Wayne has been impressed by the directors and management of PMG.  

“We have a really good group of energetic, skilled and hard-working directors and managers in the team, with a great mix of experience and age,” says Wayne.

“I see a lot of genuine care and personal drive by the team to achieve results for clients.  It’s definitely one of the reasons the group performs so well.”

“I’m looking forward to working with the Board to help them smoothly deliver measured, quality growth across the group and even better results for clients in 2018 and beyond,” he says.
