Keith Fairhurst

Keith holds an MBA in Strategy, an MSc in Finance, and a PhD in Business Management. Having spent more than 30 years in the executive world, he has had the privilege of working with high-profile companies, including KPMH and Microsoft. His unique background has afforded Keith a wealth of experience and skills, and has made him a highly sought after consultant, comfortable with a wide span of control and the ability to relate equally well to technical experts, customer-facing staff, support staff, and professional groups. It is also this distinctive blend which enables him to identify what is required in the context of the Big Picture, suggest daring and at times unpopular decisions, and ensure that the overall organisational goals are consistently prioritised. Key to achieving this is Keith’s insightful knack for balancing these decisions and strategies with maturity and an understanding of how to motivate people to reach new heights in their journey. He stays relevant and keeps up-to-date with the latest trends by teaching various finance, management, and governance programmes at local universities.
