Bio

I am based in Wellington and have been working in the risk management area with a number of different public sector organisations for the last 20 or so years. I am currently employed as Manager, Risk at the Financial Markets Authority. My main interest in risk management is getting it closely connected to what needs to be done to achieve objectives either at the organisational or team level.  

My role as Risk NZ Treasurer is to make sure that we make good and prudent use of our financial resources to achieve our objectives.

I hold a degree in Exploration Science (Mining Engineering and Geology). My interest in risk management started with my first journey down a working underground coal mine.

Dire weather conditions during seismic surveys in mountain ranges prompted my career transition into Information Technology (IT). 

IT projects gave me the opportunity to work with a huge range of organisations.  Each project implemented something new, no two projects were the same, and some became world firsts.

Introducing new technologies and re-engineering established business practice is inherently risky.  My interest in risk management grew as I implemented data analytics and systems to transform the way organisations worked.  Large business transformation projects led me into Consultancy and Independent Quality Assurance.

In 2014 I was appointed as an external, independent, member of the Audit and Risk Committee for the Parliamentary Counsel Office. In 2015 I and five others founded the Project Quality Assurance Forum. 

Despite bad weather in mountains, I still love the great outdoors.  I have always been a cyclist - an early memory is crashing my tricycle at 3 years old.  I live in Wellington and have a small holding in the Tararua ranges where we breed Angus cattle and grow timber trees.

I have always been fascinated by uncertainty and how we chose to manage it. This started at university where I studied natural hazard risk assessment for ‘The Big One’ earthquake in Wellington. After this I started working in emergency management, picking up business continuity management whilst working in contingency management over in the UK. From here it was a natural progression to pick up business risk management and I have never looked back. I now run a private consultancy business providing advice to the NZ energy sector, the forestry sector, central and local government, and small business. I have been an active member of RiskNZ for almost a decade, first joining the New Zealand Society for Risk Management in 2007. In early 2015, I took on the role of Editor for RiskNZ’s professional newsletter – RiskPost, and have been working ever since to broaden how risk practitioners think about all things ‘risky’. Last year I decided to return to University to complete a PhD in disaster risk management. The focus of my research is on how risk informs policy and procedure for Local Government natural hazard management. I am an avid gardener, paua diver, and tramper and live in Wellington with my wife and two sons.

Bio

Nathanael enjoys helping organisations and project teams achieve higher levels of performance towards their objectives and manage through uncertainty through risk management, creating and protecting value.

Graduating with a civil engineering degree I began working on civil roading projects in tendering and estimating, moving from this to project management through delivery for a contracting organisation. Following on from this base of 10 years pricing and delivering construction projects I worked in a local Council in a capital works management role. Prior to the amalgamation of Councils in Auckland I moved to a consulting firm where I performed roles in design management, project management, programme management and risk management. In the 2015 and 2016 years I delivered training in risk management and safety in design, internally within Beca, for other organisations and publically through the IPENZ Continuing Professional Development courses. In addition to a degree in Civil Engineering and Masters in Engineering Management I hold an international certificate in risk management, am a Chartered Professional Engineer and Project Management Professional.
