We are thrilled to announce that Rich Lyons has joined the ORIX NZ team as our new Head of Sales.  

He brings a wealth of experience and expertise in financial services, spanning – business development, sales management, capital sourcing & distribution, investment & funds management, investor relations, commercial real estate, banking and finance.  

“The anchor to all these roles has been creating and maintaining key relationships, being personable and demonstrating value to customers”.

Rich is looking forward to leading the ORIX NZ sales team and leveraging a strong brand with a proven track record in New Zealand. ORIX’s strong values and dedication to customers, proven by the long-standing relationships with some of New Zealand’s favourite businesses was certainly an appeal to take on the role.  

“ORIX puts customer relationships at the forefront of every decision. It starts at leadership level; but the importance of customer relationships is very much ingrained across the ORIX business, forming a big part of the ORIX culture and how we conduct business with our customers”.

Outside of work, Rich has a busy home life with his wife and three young daughters who love to get outdoors. This includes a passion for running, with Richs’ greatest achievement to date, completing the 70km Taupo Ultra Marathon in October last year.
