Ann is joining the team at Prime Strategies from her base in Christchurch. Growing up on a farm and training as a large animal veterinarian complements an extensive US based corporate career. After completing an MBA at the Johnson School, Cornell University, Ann joined Pfizer Inc and over 18 years, moved from a technical role, through to sales management and into a small global team responsible for strategic planning, mergers and acquisitions, licensing and alliances. After 7 years in New York, Ann relocated to Sydney with Pfizer to lead Asia Pacific Alliances to grow product development, food safety, animal welfare, emerging diseases, and to establish complementary businesses.
Now back in her hometown, and with two years of farm veterinary practice under her belt to re-establish herself back into the community, Ann is keen to share 20+ years of extensive experience, ranging from business processes, sales and sales management through to negotiation and company valuations, with businesses that are looking for a business partner.
Supporting two teenagers is still the focus in Ann’s life, even as they head off on their own paths with the only bit of advice being to keep your eyes/ mind open. When not injured, Ann enjoys being active – biking, walking etc, the odd wine, and catching up with friends.
Ann’s goal is to help people who want to do better and has accumulated a diverse skill set to make the happen.
