HemiToia – Director

Hemi had a rural Māori upbringing in the Hokianga which led to a lifelong interest in, and passion for, māori development. For over 25 years he has worked with Māori trusts, incorporations and limited liability companies owned by māori across the farming, forestry and hotel sectors.

Hemi was able to combine his practical background with an academic career as a senior lecturer in accountancy at Victoria University for a period of 10 years, followed by a 5 year appointment in Māori Resource Management at Auckland University.

Hemi has worked in the public sector, gaining senior management experience with both ACC and Plunket. He has worked as a consultant specializing in the development of māori capability in organisations, including strategic planning, leadership coaching and mentoring. Hemi believes his role as CEO of Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Rārua is an exciting opportunity to engage with an iwi looking to the future as it moves to the next stage of its development.
