Wānaka Community Board Deputy Chair
I moved to Wānaka with my family in 2003 after purchasing Radio Wānaka, one of only a handful of community radio stations still operating in New Zealand. In 2012 I was appointed General Manager of the world-famous Warbirds Over Wānaka International Airshow and in 2016 I was first elected to the Wānaka Community Board. I am passionate about Wānaka and was re-elected to the Board in 2019. I’m excited by the huge potential our current small tourist town has to become a world-class small city. However, I believe that we need to work harder to diversify our economy so we are not reliant on just one industry. Wānaka is in an ideal position to become a world-class centre of excellence for the likes of education, technology and aviation.
