Even more importantly, they possess the capability to deliver the people solutions you need to deliver improved business results.


Mahesh Vallabh


Mahesh (more commonly known as Mash) is our popularity guy. We can’t go anywhere in Wellington, without Mash bumping into someone he knows. This is a testimony to his relationship building skills.

Recruitment strategy and architecture are his specialist area of expertise. Mash also has experience in developing long range organisational development and people management strategies, delivering operational human resource support across multiple disciplines and leading organisations through change.


Mat Kearney


Mat gets on with everyone. He’s as comfortable speaking strategy with executives around a board table as he is speaking about day-to-day challenges with colleagues at their desks.

A true HR generalist, what Mat enjoys most is developing people solutions that conquer business challenges and maximise opportunity. He has extensive experience in managing change, this includes supporting business leaders to design strategies, engaging with staff and delivering successful change programmes.

Our Associates

HR Plus has a team of associates who are carefully selected on the basis of their professional capability and, just as importantly, their attitude to life, work and making the most of both. We only want to have our clients working with people that we want to work with. Once we understand the culture and needs of our clients we work to identify the team of specialists with the capability to deliver what is needed and have the best client fit.


Our clients

Big or small, our clients drive everything we do. Their success is our goal!  Here is just a sample of our client base.
