It is with regret that I advise that our General Manager, Louise Parkin, has resigned and will be leaving Nikau Foundation at the end of January 2019.  Her family is moving back to the UK for an indefinite period to work and travel but we know she will always have a close connection to Nikau Foundation as one of our donors.

The trustees appreciate greatly Louise’s contribution over the last three and a half years.  Under her leadership the Foundation has been transformed, undergoing substantial change and growth, with significant increases in endowment funds and the establishment of the Michael and Suzanne Borrin Foundation.

We wish Louise, Pete and Gabe all the very best for their new life in Europe.  Over the next two months Louise will be preparing for a smooth transition to her replacement.  The Board has already commenced its recruitment planning and the position will be advertised in due course.

With best regards

Chris Milne
Chair, Nikau Foundation
