About Stephen Wilkinson

With over 30 years’ experience in CEO and General Management roles with small to medium sized businesses in NZ and Australia , Steve brings a down-to-earth and practical approach to the challenges associated with running such businesses.

Steve’s broad commercial skill set has been developed through exposure to a wide variety of industries including, banking and finance, automotive, hospitality and property. His responsibilities have included developing and managing the execution of strategic plans, financial management, and developing, motivating and managing staff levels ranging in size from 10-200.

During his time in the banking and finance sector Steve was heavily involved in lending to small to medium sized businesses. This necessitated the need to clearly understand how such businesses operate and the challenges and opportunities that small to medium sized business owners face in their day to day activities.

In addition to his executive roles Steve has gained board room experience through chairing two not-for-profit organisations, over a combined period of twelve years. During this time Steve gained a valuable insight into the key differences between the governance and operational aspects of a business.

Now the owner of The Alternative Board in Christchurch City, Steve is relishing the opportunity to use his background and experience to provide a rewarding membership experience to local business owners and business leaders.
