David Whyte -     
The Laird's Story 

The castle view was not quite the outlook I grew up with, but it was where my nephew and his lovely bride had their wedding ceremony not so long ago.

Fond memories, for sure, but the journey from Scotland to New Zealand has taken in many experiences in the business scene.

From being one of the founding management team at Sovereign Assurance, to leading AIA in both NZ and Australia, to the Boards of Lifetime Group, Provident Insurance, Kiwi Adviser Network, Strategi Group, and Foundation North. This has been a rich and eventful journey so far.


A few years back, a journo coined a nickname for me - The Laird - as an acknowledgment to my Scottish heritage - so here's my invitation to you.
