Chief Financial Officer. Financial Strategy Leader.
An experienced Chartered Accountant, Kieran has worked around the globe in a number of roles across many different industries over his career. Moving to New Zealand in the early 70’s from the Everton district of Liverpool, UK, Kieran initially spent ten years with the Fletcher group and Carter Holt, gaining solid training in practical accounting applications, before moving onto finance positions with other NZ businesses in tourism, manufacturing and automotive parts distribution. After raising his family in NZ, Kieran spent almost 20 years on an extended OE, working in contract commercial and accounting roles across Germany, Hong Kong, UK and France.
Returning to New Zealand early in 2017, he joined Hammerforce as CFO, where his extensive commercial background has been critical to the success of the company. Kieran enjoys the challenges and pace of the start-up and it’s particularly close to his heart having known founder and CEO Andy Coster for many years. During his time at Hammerforce Kieran has developed and progressively implemented accounting, inventory management and administrative systems, with special emphasis on cash flow forecasting and management. He is a valued and respected member of the team at Hammerforce, a well-deserved retirement coming up somewhere soon on the horizon, but not quite yet!
