By late 2008 Kristian’s empire had grown to more than A$30M in annual revenue, but success become a tremendous failure in 2009 as his entire world came crashing down and he was left broke and homeless. He was spared bankruptcy and entered payment plans to resolve the unsecured funds. The homelessness and hopelessness he experienced as a result of his losses led to a deep depression, which almost saw him end his life.
After seeking treatment, Kristian reconnected with his family and moved back into his mother’s home. His integrity, good character and networks led to an opportunity as Director of Sales and Marketing for a start-up in the energy industry in early 2010. The battle for resurrection began.
Today, Kristian is a founder or partner in more than twenty companies in various industries, ranging from technology, online, media, marketing, e-commerce, m-commerce, investments, venture capital, private equity, events, wine, and hospitality.
Kristian will tell you that his greatest success is his family. In 2014 his partner Lucy, the love of his life, his strength and rock would become a catalyst for change, and an inspiration for the man Kristian has become. The couple have a 3-year-old called Leonardo and a baby girl called Lavender. They live in Adelaide, South Australia. My family inspire me to be better every day
