We are thrilled to welcome Paul Rea as a new volunteer trustee for the Wakatipu Community Foundation. Paul is a born and bred Southerner who holds a BCom degree from the University of Otago. After a distinguished 35-year career with Mobil, he returned to New Zealand in 2010 and is now largely retired, enjoying the outdoors and supporting the community in various ways.
Paul has been actively involved with several community organisations and is currently the chair of Arrowtown Creative Arts Society and Club Captain at Millbrook Country Club. His passion for the community and his experience in governance will be invaluable to the foundation.
As a former chair of Port Otago and a director of Waitomo Petroleum Group and start-up company, ROBOS International, Paul has significant governance experience. We are thrilled to have someone of his calibre join us and are looking forward to the expert contributions he will make to the foundation. We believe that Paul's skills, experience, and passion for the community will greatly benefit the foundation and enable us to continue our vital work in supporting the Wakatipu community and our mission of growing local philanthropy.
