Sharmin Reehman

Head of Business Development & Tech @ New Zealand Trade and Enterprise

I am an enthusiastic problem solver, passionate about connecting and engaging with people and driven by intellectual curiosity. This combination makes me quickly find customer’s pain points and identify strategic solutions.

With my 15+ year experience in international business development and refined skill in recognizing opportunities, I am able to optimize cross-functional collaborations and business success. I have lived and worked in Hong Kong, Dubai, Shanghai and Singapore, and adept in orchestrating across functions to deliver best outcome. My experience in financial services (HSBC, Zurich Financial Services and Bank of America Merrill Lynch), consulting (Deloitte and KPMG), government (New Zealand Trade & Enterprise, and German Accelerator) and working directly with Tech startups have given me the precise combination to drive driving business growth, implementing regional strategies, and developing client relations in multiple countries and across different functional teams.

Tech is at the heart of everything I do. I started with Bachelors in Computer Science and my MBA was specialized in Commercializing Innovation. A big advocate in empowering Women in Tech and also in supporting their journey to senior leadership positions.
