I have held CEO or general management positions in the profit and not-for-profit sectors both in New Zealand and Australia. I am currently CEO of Braemar Hospital Ltd, one of New Zealand’s largest private surgical hospitals. My current governance roles include:
I joined the Enrich+ board in October 2011 and was delighted when I became chairperson of the Board of Trustees in October 2012.
As a member of the Institute of Directors Committee I have an ongoing interest and activism in governance. Having served as Chair of School and Not for Profit organisations, I also have the honour of gaining a one year placement on the board of Hamilton Airport through the Aspiring Directors Award. My day to day role at Crombie Lockwood provides a great foundation on which to provide good governance given I am in the risk business.
Making a difference and improving peoples wellbeing aligns with my own personal values, and being involved with Enrich+ also enables me to give back to the community that I live in. With various governance roles, including the Institute of Financial Advisors, Waikato Anglican College Trust and Inframax Construction Limited I bring to the board a range of commercial experience, across a diverse set of industries as well as practical governance skills.
I am a Partner at Tompkins Wake Lawyers, and have over 15 years experience practicing law. I joined the Board of Trustees in June 2016. As someone who has experienced the challenges faced by a family member with disabilities, I was excited by the prospect of bringing that experience and my legal background to Enrich+. It is an organisation I hold in very high regard and I have been inspired by the enthusiasm and dedication of the staff of Enrich+.
