November 2015 - July 2016 (9 months) and Current

Part-time business development contract. Working with senior management of leading companies in New Zealand and assisting them on the journey of becoming a cognitive business.

Erwin is available to assist with a Cognitive Value Assessment and helping Clients to map their cognitive journey.


I have worked 25+ years in commercial, operational, and management roles combined with strategy and management consulting in commercial environments in both Europe and New Zealand.

My industry and sector experience includes: manufacturing, chemicals, electronics, ICT (hardware/software), import/distribution, automotive, dairy, FMCG, utilities, finance/banking & insurance, medical & healthcare, and (adventure) tourism.

In 2016 I started Business Unusual as a boutique executive search & professional recruitment business, applying all my skills and wisdom to the benefit of my clients. A personal relationship, understanding your business, my own experience from the trenches, and a unique process assures a successful completed assignment.

Furthermore I assist my clients with making the right strategic choices in accelerated growth, turnaround, realignment and business unusual situations.

Additionally I am looking for Director roles where I can add value to companies by working closely with business owners and senior management on the various business challenges they face.
