The Challenge

Craigs Investment Partners (“Craigs”) is one of New Zealand’s largest full-service investment firms, with over $27 billion* of client funds under management. Craigs offer investment advice and a variety of investment solutions to both private investors and corporate clients. Hobson Leavy and Craigs have a long-term partnership and after recently appointing new Managing Director/CEO, Simon Tong, we were engaged in the search for their Chief Financial Officer. Craigs required a seasoned finance professional with a proven track record within retail financial services who possesses outstanding and inspiring people leadership.

Our approach and success

Hobson Leavy conducted an extensive national and international search for this critical role and focused on individuals with experience in the area of equity markets, procurement and property. We were thrilled to appoint Rebecca Callaghan as Craig’s new CFO. Rebecca brings extensive experience from her time at Zespri International, ANZ and AMP Financial Services.

Hobson Leavy is delighted with our longstanding partnership and appointments of Craig’s Managing Director/CEO, CFO, COO, Head of Private Wealth and Non-Executive Directors for this outstanding organisation.
