RNZSPCA appoints new CEO


RNZSPCA appoints new CEO

The RNZSPCA (“SPCA”) board is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrea Midgen as its new chief executive officer.

In her role as CEO, Andrea will lead the newly created ‘One SPCA’ entity, a new model SPCA delegates voted for in June 2017, that will see the SPCA become one national organisation from its current 45 independent centres. The move will unify all SPCAs with a common strategy, purpose, voice and leadership for the benefit of all animals in New Zealand.

RNZSPCA Board Chair Gordon Trainer says Ms Midgen has made a tremendous contribution to the SPCA in her time with the organisation.

“We’re delighted with Andrea’s appointment and are confident she will continue to build on the crucial work she has led to date,” he says.

“Andrea, together with the other members of the SPCA’s senior leadership, has been a driving force behind the SPCA’s structural, cultural and constitutional transformation to better achieve our purpose - to create a better life for New Zealand’s animals.”

Ms Midgen says she is thrilled to officially step into the role of CEO and is looking forward to leading the shift to one organisation.

“I’m privileged to be able to continue leading a team of people who are incredibly passionate about preventing cruelty to animals and improving the way they are treated. I’m looking forward to the next chapter and unifying the SPCA as one national organisation working together to achieve the right outcome for every animal in New Zealand.”

Ms Midgen is a proven leader with extensive CEO and senior executive experience, both within and outside the SPCA. Ms Midgen has provided strong leadership and vision for the animal welfare organisation as acting RNZSPCA CEO since July 2016, while simultaneously serving as SPCA Auckland CEO for more than two years.

Prior to joining SPCA Auckland in April 2015, Andrea held the positions of Group Strategist/CFO for Southern Cross Group and several senior executive roles in Vodafone, culminating as Director, Customer Operations. During her time at Vodafone, Andrea also developed her governance background in the charitable trusts environment as the Chair of the Vodafone New Zealand Foundation.

Ms Midgen’s new appointment starts on 14 August 2017.

Gordon Campbell: On Why Todd Muller Needs To Own The Privacy Leak Scandal


Whenever a political scandal breaks, party leaders have two basic options. They can confess to being in boots and all, and try to brazen it out : nothing to see here, move on. This tended to be the John Key approach. Very hard to pull that off in this case, given that it involved violating the privacy of sick New Zealanders for party political gain.
The other option is to claim innocence of this terrible, no good, highly regrettable “error of judgement” and apologise profusely for the sins of others, while absolving your own good self of any responsibility. This has been Todd Muller’s chosen path.... More>>
