The Torquepoint team is led by Dr Simon Ewing-Jarvie (Chief Disruption Officer) and Hon Heather Roy (Chief Engagement Officer).
He has a PhD in business and managed to survive 25 years in the New Zealand Defence Force including 2 excellent overseas war games supervised by the UN et al. He has done some serious 'suit time' as a corporate dweller and business consultant and has dabbled (with mixed results) in politics.
She needed more challenge than raising 5 children and being a Member of Parliament so she joined the Army Reserve as a field engineer. Then she became a Government Minister. Now she's a professional director and our Chief Engagement Officer and also hopes to get better at fishing (soon).
