Hello, I’m Rob Goudswaard

I’m a Board director, adviser, consultant and mentor with over four decades of experience in the banking and finance sector in Australia and internationally.

After 25 years in senior executive roles, including 9 years in CEO positions, I’m pursuing my interests in technology, agribusiness and leadership. I have much to offer companies that are challenged by digital disruption or increasing regulation.

If you'd like to discuss working together, please get in touch here.

As an experienced and successful CEO, I’m often asked for my advice by other leaders who are seeking counsel from someone who’s been there and done that.

I really enjoy this work and have been told that I bring a lot of empathy and authenticity to these coaching conversations. If this sort of support is of interest to you, please get in touch for a chat.
