Matt Gorman

Chief Executive Officer

Matt Gorman is Gallaway Cook Allan’s CEO.  He has spent his entire career in the Professional Services sector, first in the Market Research industry, then Accountancy & Consulting, before finding the legal sector in 1998 when he joined a global firm in a business development role.  Since then it’s been law firms all the way, broadening out from business development into general management. 

Matt moved with his family to Dunedin at the end of 2013 and has been with Gallaway Cook Allan since mid-2014.  After a career with global firms what Matt most appreciates in a smaller firm is the ability to be very hands-on in all aspects of the business. 

Matt is involved with the MBA programme at the University of Otago, acting as a mentor to students and running workshops in networking and presentation skills.  He also helps the Audacious programme entrepreneurs with their pitching skills.

At home, Matt's wife, six children and two dogs keep him pretty busy.
