Dean Cross


Chief Financial Officer

Dean has more than twenty years’ senior experience in New Zealand’s public sector, primarily within health, but also with local councils and education providers. He’s an approved Ministry of Health business case reviewer and has been involved in the preparation of many large district health board and private hospital business cases. He is enjoying his time at Pinnacle, given the opportunity to develop his knowledge within the primary health sector, alongside strengthening his relationships with DHB peers.

Dean is a member of Australia and New Zealand Chartered Accountants. He holds a Bachelor of Business Studies from Massey University, majoring in accounting and finance.

Dean enjoys a variety of team sports, particularly rugby, football and cricket, and is getting close to a single-figure golf handicap. Unfortunately, his other interests of eating and drinking seem to be getting in the way of golf.
