With more than 25 years’ experience in multiple industries, Sharon has done it all, from working in large software vendors, right down to being part of companies with fewer than 10 employees. Having joined Verde Group as a consultant in 2016 after seeking a change in pace in her career, Sharon predominantly handles development work and enjoys the opportunity presented by the technology industry to learn something new every day.
Having studied science at the University of Auckland and Sports and Recreation at Auckland University of Technology, she brings a fresh perspective to business challenges and particularly enjoys engaging with challenges which present complex logical problems. When it comes to design, Sharon consistently delivers elegance and simplicity. Like most at Verde Group, Sharon is obsessed with efficiency and views her greatest success as delivering a process improvement which minimised waste in a high-value industry, delivering millions of dollars in savings.
The rate of change in the information technology industry keeps her coming back for more, and Sharon values being part of a passionate, knowledgeable team dedicated to achieving the best outcomes for all clients.
A keen outdoors person, Sharon loves running, cycling, triathlon/multisport and has more recently investigated rowing and tramping. She’ll often have her nose in a good book and enjoys gardening, is active in animal welfare and supports the preservation of natural resources.
