Mr. Pearce is a highly-experienced professional who brings together the rare combination of success and achievement at the highest levels of both the commercial and public sectors. His background aligns perfectly with the values-based approach of NGS Global to providing partner-led solutions across many different facets of business and industry, private and publicly listed businesses, education, government and not-for-profit organizations.

“The reputation of NGS Global in the marketplace is what drew me to the firm. I feel a strong affinity with their values and have, through my own business experience, seen their outstanding work in practice,” said Mr. Pearce upon his appointment.

“We’re excited to have an executive of Chris’s caliber joining NGS Global,” said Mark Lelliott, Managing Partner Asia and member of the Global Operating Committee. “Mr. Pearce’s experience as a Member of the Ministry and Member of the Australian Parliament, adds depth and context to the team. He was in the Federal Government Ministry and was responsible for financial services, business law and consumer affairs, and later was a Shadow Minister.”

Since retiring from Parliament and returning to the corporate world, Mr. Pearce has held senior executive roles within the Telecommunications and ICT sector and served on commercial, government and not-for-profit boards. He is currently a Non-Executive Director at the St Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research.
