Keith is an inspirational Leader with experience in the Defence, Māori public health, conservation and film sectors.

After 38 years in the Royal New Zealand Air Force, Keith went on to work in Māori public health at the University of Auckland as a Programme Manager for the research and development of strategies to assist Māori whānau in the prevention of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI). He spent five years with the Department of Conservation as Operations Manager for the Auckland Inner Hauraki Gulf Islands and three years in the film industry working on various productions within the transport department.  Keith brings a wealth of expertise and knowledge to Height which will be highly valuable to our pakihi Māori businesses wishing to contract to Government.
