I first met Alister during 1998 when he visited our TOTO Jakarta office and factories which are majority owned by my principal; Mr. Mardjoeki Atmadiredja.
The positive impressions of Alister during those meetings and consequent confidence and trust achieved between all parties has resulted in a long and fruitful business friendship which now extends into the next generation of Toto Indonesia’s management.
A direct result of this association is the success of the NZPM Group achieving exclusive NZ distributorship of the TOTO brand (world’s largest bathroom and kitchen fixtures manufacturer).
Alister demonstrates absolute integrity and care in all aspects of his business, and his diplomacy, cultural awareness, negotiating skills, and quiet sense of humour smooths the way throughout.
I would absolutely recommend Alister without hesitation for any role where leadership, integrity, diplomacy, and executive management skills are a requirement.
