New Zealand

Ross is the Founder and Managing Director of Kinfolk Capital, an independent private equity group based in Auckland, New Zealand. He began his career as an engineer and project manager for Fletcher Building, where he worked with the team that built Auckland’s Sky Tower and Vero Centre.  He then spent two years on a working OE in the UK, before completing an MBA at Haas-Berkeley.  After returning to New Zealand in 2004, he co-founded a professional services export firm with his wife Hollie, and led the development of the Kiwi Expat Association (Kea) - a global business network with members in over 180 countries.  Ross and Hollie have three young boys, who keep him fit enough to run the odd marathon and indulge his recent interest in freediving and spearfishing.  Connect with Ross on LinkedIn here.
