Kim Nankivell's career began many years ago as a teacher, and since then, he has been a coach, a boarding housemaster, a vineyard owner, a Sales and Marketing Manager for the New Zealand wine industry's largest grape vine supplier, and more recently a Consulting Practice Manager and Southern Regional Manager for Olympic.

This broad experience, combined with his natural empathy and communication skills, gives Kim a solid foundation for quickly building relationships with clients that ensure their issues are clearly understood, and their unique business needs are met.

"I have a passion and great interest in social media and eCommerce/ multi-channel retailing and the ever changing online selling landscape.

I love working at Olympic in no small part because of the camaraderie and intellectual horsepower of so many of the team. Coupled with the flat structure and open and collaborative culture created by Joe McLeod. It is great to be able to operate autonomously and yet be part of something bigger.

Having a broad and diverse client base gives great insight in to various business models and it never fails to amaze me what people and organisations, successfully, do to make a dollar."
