Since 2014 Taranaki Mounga Project Director Jan Hania (pictured) has been instrumental in developing and implementing our transformational 34,000-hectare landscape-scale project.
This week Jan moves from his role as Project Director to an Independent Director on our Taranaki Mounga Board.
Our team and board are delighted to continue to have his expertise and knowledge at this governance level.
“Jan through his role as the NEXT Foundation Environmental Director was a key driver in bringing together successful partnerships and an innovative model which has seen the revitalisation of our tupuna mounga,” says Taranaki Mounga Chair Jamie Tuuta.
“We are fortunate to have Jan join us on the Board as our project evolves and grows. He brings a wealth of skills, strong governance experience and provides continuity which is also vitally important.”
Taranaki Mounga continues to strive and align with the Government’s vision for a predator free New Zealand by 2050.
Our Co-Project Manager Sean Zieltjes will be Pouārahi Tupua / Acting Project Director and Sera Gibson will be in the sole acting role as Pou Whakahaere / Project Manager.
The Taranaki Mounga Board will confirm its new structure over the coming months and will advertise accordingly.
