New interim CEO for Zealandia, Natasha Petkovic-Jeremic

Zealandia (Karori Sanctuary) welcomes new interim Chief Executive Natasha Petkovic-Jeremic, who begins a six month position at the sanctuary from January, taking on the reigns from outgoing CE Nancy McIntosh-Ward.

“This is an exciting opportunity and I am really looking forward to supporting the transition of the new board and the enhanced partnership model with the Council. Zealandia is a treasured community asset and it is great to be able to contribute to its inspirational vision.” Petkovic-Jeremic said.

“Natasha brings with her immense relationship management skills and a diverse background in visitor experience engagement. She will be an excellent person to assist the organisation in this transition” said outgoing Chief Executive McIntosh-Ward.

Natasha was previously Manager of City Arts, business unit of Wellington Council. She brings more than 15 years of experience of developing and delivering organisational strategies, primarily in the cultural/museum sector. She has a good understanding of the current challenges that cultural institutions face, ranging from developing new and fresh funding and business development strategies, to achieving memorable visitor experiences.

Recently, on behalf of the Council, Natasha managed Carter Observatory’s transition to the Wellington Museums and subsequently managed Carter, as Director, during the first year of operation after its redevelopment.

Since 2008 Natasha has been working closely with the Karori Sanctuary Trust in her role as Portfolio Manager, Council Controlled organisations.

Natasha’s wide experience with audience and visitor experience development, stakeholder relationship management, performance and budget monitoring and strategic and business development and delivery is well suited to her new role.
