Examples of Frank’s work
Nelson Airport: Economic cost analysis – Frank built an economic cost model to forecast the costs of a runway extension for the airport. Using his experience in financial analysis, he drew from a range of sources to evaluate the potential costs and economic impacts of the project, and worked with experts to evaluate these estimates.
Environmental Protection Agency: Funding review – Frank supported an analysis of the long-term funding of the agency and used his experience to provide insights from industry professionals and from a wide array of information from the EPA and the wider sector.
Electricity Authority: Independent assessment of impact measures – He supported this assessment by analysing a range of consumer-focussed documents covering the key impact measures being tested, including interviewing the staff who developed the documents.
Submissions analysis – Frank has supported the coding of submissions for a range of submissions analysis projects. This included public submissions on a complex and controversial package of proposed legislation, a large internal survey for a public agency, and submissions on change management processes affecting several teams within an agency.
Frank graduated from Victoria University of Wellington with a BCom in Economics and Finance in 2018. He returned to VUW to complete a Master of Business (Professional) in 2022, specialising in Investment Management.
