Current Trustees

The Board is made up of six elected Trustees who all come from different backgrounds.  Each Trustee brings experience, knowledge and a different perspective to the decisions of the Trust. What they have in common is a commitment to make sure TECT’s decisions are in the best interests of its Consumers, now and in the future.

Natalie was appointed a trustee in August 2016.

Natalie is an advocate for Tauranga and the Western Bay’s growth to make it increasingly a place everyone wants to be. “TECT plays a huge role in making this growth happen in a sustainable and meaningful way, from small, grassroots projects and events, right through to city infrastructure. It’s a real privilege to be a trustee.”

Natalie founded public relations and marketing company Blink in September 2012. She worked in the UK as a producer, production assistant and researcher at the BBC. In New Zealand she pursued journalistic roles at the Bay of Plenty Times, More FM and RadioLIVE, before working as editor of Simply You and Simply You Living magazines.
