Our Senior Leaders


Garry Fissenden

As CEO of Skills Consulting Group, Garry leads the team that’s building NZ’s workforce capability through organisational development, education consulting, training solutions and health & wellbeing support. He is a highly qualified business leader with experience in vocational education, financial services and information communications technology, and has led businesses in NZ, Australia and the Pacific Islands.

When he’s not leading the team, Garry can be found in his garage doing a full restore of a 1972 Ford Capri. His welding skills have risen from really awful to just awful – but apparently bog covers pretty much everything.
