Grant Frear - Consulting Partner and NZ Banking Sector Lead

As one of the senior Consulting partners at Deloitte New Zealand. Grant leads our Deloitte Digital and Banking Sector teams and also serve on the Insurance Sector Leaders team. He specialises in technology-enabled business strategies, focusing on financial services clients.

Grant enjoys helping businesses develop and implement great strategies to help them achieve their business goals. While he admires great strategies, he has a lot more respect for those that can implement them. The world of business and technology is developing at pace, things that were once out of reach for many New Zealand businesses are now a reality, so to really take advantage of this, business needs to have a mind shift. Small is the new big - innovation is critical as the challenge shifts to how you can pull together the options that are now available to you. Well thought out strategies are great, the ability to execute is critical.
