With a wealth of Government and private sector experience to draw on, Craig’s ability to think independently and act decisively has been a strong catalyst for the growth Saturn Portfolio has experienced since he joined the business in 2006.


During the course of his career, Craig has been a diplomat, economist, CIO and CEO. He is a professional, independent director of Precinct Properties, AIG NZ and the NZ Local Government Funding Authority and has authored reports for both local and central Government.


As Chairman of Saturn Portfolio, Craig works closely with our Managing Director, John McConnell, to ensure the interests of our stakeholders are carefully considered and responsibly managed.


In addition to being a director and shareholder of Saturn Portfolio, Craig maintains a financial interest in a number of other companies, including global equity fund manager Elevation Capital, specialist vineyard Legend Terrace and oyster farmer and exporter Biomarine Group.


Outside of work, after a number of years mountaineering in NZ and overseas, he continues to be a keen cross-country and downhill skier, sailor and ocean swimmer. He also enjoys drama and literature and is a long-time supporter of Otago rugby and the Highlanders.
