I was an accountant for 33 years in management, systems, project and construction accounting primarily in senior roles at New Zealand Aluminum Smelters in Invercargill and at Rio Tinto Ltd in Brisbane. Since retiring 11 years ago I have been Financial Director for the Wanaka Golf Club for 8 years and 2 years as Treasurer of the Wanaka Bridge Club. As a Trustee of the The Wanaka Community House Charitable Trust I am passionate about ensuring it is built in a timely and cost-effective manner.
