Yep, normally it’s to do with houses, but I thought I’d apply it to the way your business looks when things are working right. It sounds dull, but understanding where your risks are makes you more resilient, better organized and more compliant. Having your quality systems sorted will make your life easier and your customers happy with how you deal with them. Having your safety systems right makes you and the team feel safe and confident that you can deal with whatever life throws at you, besides which the legal requirements are clear and not difficult to comply with. Kerb Appeal NZ is here to help you navigate both these arenas, with a background in aviation, where quality and safety are pretty dovetailed, and broad experience of application of the principles and processes, Kerb Appeal NZ can help you put in place the systems you need.
Our Story
After 20 years working in Aviation Engineering, in a range of roles, culminating in Quality and Safety Manager for a leading Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul organisation, it was time to change tack, and transfer the passion I have for good quality and safety to support other businesses. Kerb Appeal NZ was the outcome of that change and we look forward to supporting you…

Affter studying Aerospace Engineering and management, I joined the Royal Navy as an Air Engineer Officer. Over 17 years, I wrote safety cases and risk registers, managed quality systems, including training as a quality auditor and managed safety systems and oversight of complex safety environments.

I left the RN to emigrate to NZ, and went to work firstly as Bid Support Manager and then Quality and Safety Manager for an established aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul company.

I am a certified lead auditor for ISO 450001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, have revised and updated quality and safety management systems in compliance with ISO 9001:2015 and a range of aviation and Worksafe regulatory requirements.

I am a Chartered Engineer and a member of the NZ Safety Council and the NZ Organization for Quality and an Associate Member of the Risk Management Society
