Real talk. We’re an honest bunch with a down-to-earth and direct approach. We don’t talk circles around clients with confusing lingo, and we’re down for meeting at the local café when you need a break from the boardroom.


Your success is our success – which ensures all of our services and solutions are results-driven. Our proactive team work quickly and effectively, and keep you in the loop every step of the way while achieving your desired outcomes.


The Vault offers genuine professional expertise across all key areas. Our in-house experts have decades of real, on the ground experience, and team with specialty partners we trust to deliver results you can rely on.


The Vault Business Consultants is led by Scott McCormick, who offers more than 11 years of experience in the hospitality industry and 5+ years in the business startup and management consulting sector. From working on the floor in one of Melbourne’s busiest bars to Directing a Kiwi-owned RTD startup, Scott offers an in-depth understanding of the ins and outs of hospitality, and strong relationships with suppliers, police and Councils – positioning him as a trusted leader in the sector.

The Vault was established to meet the demand for honest, down to earth consulting services needed by local startups and SME owners. What began with Scott offering simple but effective advice to fellow business owners has grown organically to become The Vault – and today, Scott and his team offer a full service, streamlined solution, combined with the ‘real talk’ approach that Kiwi business owners love.

When he’s not serving up results-focused consulting advice in the boardroom – or over a expresso martini– Scott can be found walking Bruno the Frenchie, or spending time exploring New Zealand’s superb scenery and hotspots with his daughter.
