What do you do when you are not at work?
I've got three young kids - five, four and 18 months old - but when I have 'me' time, I like adventure racing, which I was introduced to just over a year ago. It's like a triathlon in the bush with mountain biking, running, kayaking and a bit of navigation as well. It's done in teams of two or three and it's really addictive.
Do you like gadgets?
I'm not a big gadget man which, in this industry, it's quite unusual. But if it fits my needs, I'll look at it. As an example, I just bought a GPS unit for my mountain bike called an edge 305. It's no bigger than a mobile phone and just clips onto your bike, measuring your speed, where you've been and your heart rate. What's so great is you can download it online and overlay it on Google Earth to see where you've been, your elevation and heart rate around a particular course.
What did you want to be when you were younger?
I always wanted to be a doctor from the age of about four until I was 15 or 16 and I just wasn't getting the marks. I was like any other 16-year-old boy having too much fun and schoolwork wasn't my main priority. Can you relate healing people to management? I guess you can in a way because there's this weird link between looking after people and managing people.
What is your biggest ambition?
It's got to come down to my family and my kids. I want to give them every opportunity to be what they want to be. I love what I do at work and providing opportunities for the people there is important to me, too.
