People are the most important thing in the world.
Born in London and raised in Germany, Raz has worked as a business consultant in sales and marketing for over 20 years. Before arriving in New Zealand in 2009, Raz owned, operated and sold several businesses overseas and a German restaurant in Nelson.
Over the years he has learned that trust and a personal touch are just as important as hard skills, and honesty and integrity are still the basis for a sustainable and successful business. He has developed excellent communication skills which enables him to carefully listen and clearly understand clients' needs.
A genuine desire to help people has developed his customer service and people skills, and a law degree along with his lifelong interest in learning and teaching led him to a position as a Commercial Law and Business Management Lecturer at NMIT.
With an analytical mind and a high technical affinity, he constantly improves his systems and processes to be more effective and efficient for his clients.
Former customers commend his responsiveness, friendly and humorous nature, and calm but firm negotiation skills.
In his free time, Raz serves as a voluntary business mentor and is an active member and trustee of a local charity. Whenever possible he enjoys the nature, great food and wine of our region.
