Originally hailing from Derry in the Northwest of Ireland David has called NZ home since 2013.
In what was supposed to be one stop as part of a world tour he quickly fell in love with NZ and didn’t go any further on that trip.
Having early aspirations on a career in journalism he quickly found out that advertising was much more lucrative in terms of earning potential and followed a career path in sales instead.
A chance meeting in Auckland led to a successful interview with a global recruitment company.
He would go on to spend seven years there initially working in Accounting & Finance before establishing and leading one of the technology teams.
In 2020 David would go onto work for NZ's largest technology services company as a Recruitment Business Partner collaborating with the company’s leaders in setting recruitment strategies to service demands across multiple verticals.
More recently he had been working at one of Auckland’s top IT & Digital consultancies before deciding it was time to establish Rewired Consulting.
In his spare time, he mixes spending quality time with his family (he is a father to two very energetic young kids) as well as being obsessive about playing Golf and watching football instead of playing now his legs have gone.
Sean Patterson Director & Principal Consultant
Sean is a very proud Scottish man who has made his home in NZ over the past 6 years.
Having fallen into recruitment initially in Edinburgh for the Scottish government he decided to take those skills overseas and booked a trip to NZ after hearing great things about the country.
On arriving in Auckland Sean quickly picked up a role for a global recruitment company going onto to have great success in number of verticals including Supply Chain & Procurement.
After three years and deciding he needed a wee break he took a short sabbatical to Southeast Asia before returning to NZ and taking up a Talent Acquisition role with a government agency.
In this role he was responsible for recruiting across the business technology portfolio which has over 300 employees.
Having worked with David previously and remaining good friends they came up with the idea for starting Rewired Consulting and the rest they say, is history.
Sean really enjoys the kiwi way of life, outdoor living and the guaranteed summers that don't exist back in his homeland.
He enjoys spending his days away from work on the golf course and is a diehard Hibernian FC fan much to his own detriment at times.
