|Kim has specialised in PPSA consultancy and registration services since similar legislation was introduced in New Zealand in 2001/2002 - he is a co-founder of EDX.PPSA is a natural area of interest for him – he is a former receiver and liquidator and then headed up the recoveries division of a major NZ bank, before “jumping the fence” to the good side, rebuilding the business bank book as NZ emerged from recession in the early 90’s. This means he is expert in enforcing security, taking security and managing security.
He relocated to Melbourne in late 2010 to lead EDX’s entry in to the Australian market. When asked about the biggest challenge, he replied that “It is really hard to get companies to take PPSA seriously. If the NZ experience is anything to go by, companies often come to us when they have suffered an (avoidable) bad debt. There is every indication that a similar trend is emerging in Australia and that outside of the well informed few, most Australian businesses will be under prepared and consequently over exposed to risk of bad debts.”
Outside of work, Kim’s main passion is yachting and even though he is thoroughly enjoying his early days in Melbourne, he pines for the sparkling waters of the Hauraki Gulf.
