I am interested to offer my governance and business experience to the FGLT Board. 

I am a Chartered Director with over 30 years business experience and I am a Director of a company which has established, owned and operated over 40 hectares of pinus radiata forest on the East Coast between Gisborne and Wairoa. We planted the forest in 1992 and the forest was harvested in 2017 and replanted in 2018.

I have most recently been an Integration Advisor to Fire and Emergency NZ. I have also been nominated to become a Justice of the Peace by my local MP.

Early career involved several years working in local government as a senior environmental health officer and Principal Rural Fire Officer. 

Have been a volunteer firefighter in the NZ Fire Service since 1981. Progressed through NZ Fire Service to become Chief Fire Officer for the Te Puke Fire Brigade in 2006 and still hold this position. Involved since early 2017 in Safety Health & Wellbeing Workstream developing strategies for the new Fire and Emergency NZ organization. For twenty five years I was involved in establishing, directing and managing a range of retail and forestry businesses, including a franchise operation, that experienced significant growth and success. Some taken from startup to annual sales of $2.5m. In 2011 I was appointed Director of the United Fire Brigade Association and in 2014 was recognised as a finalist in the Bay of Plenty Aspiring Director Awards. Director, since 1992, in the family forestry investment company 

Achieved Chartered Membership of the Institute of Directors in 2016 

A highly respected leader now looking to make a contribution as a Director of government or commercial organisations.
