Six years ago, Mary met Scott while the two New Zealanders were working in the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait respectively for generator hire company, Aggreko. As the global Head of Compliance, Mary was Scott’s Compliance Officer and headed out to Kuwait to conduct Compliance training. Not only was Mary thrilled to meet a fellow Kiwi expat at the company, but she was very impressed by how welcoming Scott, then head of the Kuwait business, made her and went to extra effort to ensure that her business trip went smoothly.

Scott obviously took Compliance very seriously and a few years later, after both Kiwis had moved on from Aggreko, Scott reached out to Mary to let her know that in his new role as a Commercial Director, he would also be taking on the Compliance portfolio. We hear how Scott has transitioned from being solely in a business role and into a newly fledged Compliance professional.

Mary considered Scott to be an ideal GWIC guest because he was fully supportive of Compliance and entirely respectful of a woman running the function and additionally has been very vocal about singing the praises of capable women in Compliance and making introductions to connect women in the field to enlarge their networks. As a bonus, during this episode we get a chance to hear about leadership from someone who is truly a servant leader and breaks down hierarchical barriers to be fully inclusive from the top.

Join Mary and Scott as they re-live experiences in the Middle East and Scott shares his number one tip for men to best support female colleagues in the workplace. See less -
