MINDFULL BY NATURE, BELINDA KNOWS WHAT OUR CLIENTS WANT BEFORE THEY DO

BELINDA IS ALL ABOUT KEEPING OUR CLIENTS ZEN

In her pre-Mindfull life, Belinda was the CFO of a large property development company which explains her razor sharp knowledge of all things financial and impressive business acumen. It was a natural progression for this over-achiever who started her career as a Chartered Accountant after notching up her BCom, MBA and CA qualifications. Belinda looks after Mindfull's clients and is the poster girl for our values of empathy, tenacity and business nous. And when it comes to the technical stuff, there's no one better than Belinda at corralling the right experts together to solve our clients' problems.

CAPTAINING THE CHARGE FOR INFORMED BUSINESS DECISION MAKING

Ben is a keen fisherman but you won’t find him telling any big fish stories

Ben heads up our sales operation and has 20 years of broad experience in the technology sector. Ben isn’t one of those sales types that likes the sound of his own voice - he always starts by listening to our customers’  business problems. It helps that Ben has walked in many of our client’s shoes, having been involved in several of his own tech start-ups as well as having managed major portfolios for IBM, VMware and CommVault.

 

Ben takes ownership of our client’s business problems and has a reputation for creating happy customers -  even under the most difficult of circumstances. His passion for fishing and travel has taken him to all corners of the world which we think makes him a well-rounded sort of guy.

After coming back from his second post-doc in France, he has worked for large NZ enterprises: Westpac, Spark, and Fonterra. He enjoys working with numbers, and telling people the fascinating insights from his models. Very easy going, and always switched on and ready to solve challenging problems.

TURNING COMPLEXITY INTO SIMPLICITY IS AN ART

THIERRY IS A TRUE ARTIST WHEN IT COMES TO PAINTING A PICTURE FOR HIS CLIENTS

Thierry helps companies organise their data in a single central repository, allowing them to analyse their past to better understand their present and plan for the future. Originally from France, Thierry embraces cultural diversity and has pursued an international career path which as taken him to the US, Europe and New Zealand. Maybe it’s because English is his second language, but Thierry has mastered the art of using simple words and images to explain abstract concepts – a skill that his clients appreciate. Thierry is affectionately referred to by many around the office as the Grumpy Frenchman.

HELPING OUR CLIENTS FOCUS ON WHAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT

LOUISE TAKES THE HARD WORK OUT OF CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS

Louise gives our clients back something they’re very short on – time. That’s because the time they used to spend manually sorting their data can now be spent on adding value to their business. Louise helps organisations automate the processing of their data and turn it into actionable insights that make a real difference to the bottom line. Louise is a CA so she has plenty of experience crunching the numbers. As a Budgeting, Planning and Forecasting Analyst at New Zealand Post, she discovered the power of IBM Cognos TM1 and hasn’t looked back since. After a brief stint across the ditch, she returned to New Zealand to work for Mindfull where she could indulge her passion for BI and TM1. We don't know how she gets so much work done, but when she does find time to relax, you’ll find her on the golf course or out on her bike.
