Partner, PwC New Zealand
Gareth brings arm waving, visualisation, strategic thinking, relentless enthusiasm, and an unwavering focus on great user experiences to PwC digital’s clients. He’s a firm believer that organisations differentiate themselves by the experience they offer employees and customers — and the only way to improve those experiences is through human-centred design.
Gareth has spent his working life in the broader design community. He started with a bachelor’s degree in architecture and has since been a graphic designer, consultant, account director, manager, Chief Infographer, CEO, and chair of a district cricket association.
Gareth works with organisations to understand problems, uncover opportunities, shape strategies, and implement solutions that deliver useful, usable, delightful experiences. His leadership, visual communication, facilitation, and design-thinking skills help project teams deliver meaningful outcomes for their organisations and customers. He is also a design coach with Better by Design and the Auckland Co-Design Lab.
Gareth is always up for a good keen adventure and has hiked pretty much all of New Zealand’s great walks. He also calls himself a big cricket nut.
