Tom’s history has been built on action balanced with a service ethic. Formerly an army officer, he has been working with charities as a strategic income advisor since 2007. In this time, he has been responsible for organisational transformations and multi-million dollar fundraising campaigns in New Zealand, Australia and the UK.
Tom’s speciality is harnessing the power of the charitable dollar when it is applied for results. As such, he has a wealth of experience of leading practical change at Board level across the non-profit sector.
Tom was asked to join the board at an exciting time in the Trust’s life and was inspired by the determination and drive of all those involved in CatWalk. He feels privileged to be part of the ‘A team’ built by the founders to make permanent spinal cord injury a thing of the past.
Tom has a BSc and is one of only 21 New Zealanders to be an internationally Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE)”
