Te Tai Tokerau Water

Te Tai Tokerau Water Trust team is made up of 11 full-time and part-time staff who are committed to achieving the vision of establishing the two working water schemes planned for Northland. These roles vary across all aspects of project management, to landholder and stakeholder relations, as well as Maori engagement, communications, finance and administration. You can see a full list of staff and contact details below.

The board is made up of four trustees, all of whom are from, and live in Northland. Hon. Murray McCully (chair) and Hon. Dover Samuels were appointed by the Crown when the Trust was established in mid-2020 and they have since been joined by Ken Rintoul and Kathryn de Bruin.
