Pukaha has a new general manager, Emily Court. She started in her role immediately after Labour weekend.
Ms Court moved to the Wairarapa from Christchurch two years ago after spending the previous five years working in a business recovery role after the 2010 and 2011 Christchurch earthquakes. She led a recovery programme for the international education sector which included securing a $5million funding package during her tenure.
Emily has also had previous roles in banking, retail, economic development and international education. Her most recent role has been with the Wairarapa branch of Public Trust as a Professional Trustee and manager.
Ms Court has a business degree from Victoria University, an MBA and also holds a formal project management qualification.
This extensive business background will be a real asset to Pukaha, as they are in the process of planning several new and interesting developments.
Emily is excited about the new role and outside of it, will continue to spend time with her two children in their new Wairarapa home. In their spare time the family enjoys renovating their old bungalow in Carterton, riding their horses and exploring the North Island.
