Changes in the PNZ team and getting stuck in with new service Match

August 13, 2021

We’ve got a changing of the guard at PNZ. We have employed Stephanie (Steff) Kemp as Relationships and Events Manager to replace Yvonne Trask, who leaves us after 11 years in the role. We acknowledge Yvonne’s large contribution to growing effective giving in her time at PNZ.

Yvonne leaves on 31 August, and Steff will start on 13 September. We’re looking forward to having Steff on board in this important member-facing role. Steff is currently Development Manager at Chamber Music New Zealand.

Terri Petersen, our Communications and Marketing Advisor, is moving about three doors along the Terrace to take up a very cool role as Digital Content Advisor for the Youth Service in the Ministry of Social Development. Terri has been with us for two years, managing our e-newsletter, publications, and social media as well as project communications and event marketing. We will miss Terri.

Courtney Ellingham Prebble will take on the communications and marketing role. Courtney is currently finishing her degree, so will start with us part-time on August 25 when Terri leaves, and then move to full-time in October.

Neil O’Styke has been contracting with us for some time behind the scenes, helping out in a range of areas including preparatory work for developing Match – your funding place. We are stoked that he has taken on the role of Project Manager for this initiative. We are also hiring a general manager for Match so watch this space for news of that important appointment.

We wish Yvonne and Terri all the best and thank them for their contribution to growing effective giving. We look forward to introducing our new team members to you as they come on board.
