Sam’s Experience

Sam has been a trusted advisor and implementer of change and restructure strategies for CEOs over the last 15+ years in blue-chip multinational, public service and not-for-profit organisations.

Major achievements from some of these strategies include;

  • Turnaround of Aftersales business unit of a multinational from a cost into a profit centre (25% ROI) during a recession and integrated training products for an Academy business into Nationally Recognised Qualifications.
  • Turnaround of a Member Fund from a $138m deficit to $204m surplus, saving $3.8m in overheads and increasing revenue from $85m to $125m in three years and growing total Fund to $1.2b.
  • Increased cashflow/balance by over 100% and turnover by over 25% for not-for-profit organisations.
  • Improved operational capacity (20%), efficiency and costs saving in logistics and telecommunications (30%), increasing employee productivity by 14-20% and increased online channel takeup by 24%.

Put simply – Sam is the bridge between HR & Operations. Check out his insight in one of his articles here on whether “CHANGE impacts CULTURE in a toxic way.
