Lisa Whyte

I will bring finance, governance, and many years of local government experience to the board. I’m currently an Auckland District Licensing Committee Chair and Board member of Basketball New Zealand and Tennis New Zealand. Previous governance roles include Netball North Harbour and Northern Auckland Kindergarten boards, and governance coaching and advice for community organisations.

I’m an experienced problem solver with a broad business and community network and I believe in grassroots community development ‘by community, for community’. I can help navigate the complex advocacy, regulation and funding environment trusts face.

It is a privilege to have the opportunity use my network, governance and finance skills in service.
