Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi Appoint Chrissie Hape General Manager

The Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi Incorporated Board is pleased to announce their appointment of Chrissie Hape as the new General Manager.

This new appointment was made soon after the announcement of the former iwi Chief Executive’s resignation from her position in May this year.

The executive decision was made by the Board to appoint a General Manager for the next twelve months to help see the office through a transitional stage of growth and empowerment to strengthen greater relationships with partners that will create best outcomes for our whanau, hapu, iwi.

In twelve months the Chief Executive position will be advertised accordingly.

In November 2014, Chrissie Hape was seconded from the Ministry of Social Development to work as a Partner Advisor between the Ministry and the iwi to support outcomes for whanau.

Chrissie has over 25 years of management experience both within central government and in community sectors. She is an agile experienced leader and has managed people, projects and services with an emphasis on building strong effective relationships for the best outcomes for our community. She has the ability to lead strong cohesive teams with diverse responsibilities and priorities that meet the needs of our people. Chrissie also has a strong financial background and has already made some good decisions to ensure the organisation moves forward in a stable financial position.

Chrissie hails from Kahungunu ki Heretaunga through Kahuranaki and Houngarea Marae and has strong tikanga values and beliefs that governs her work ethic. “I believe that strong, resilient and healthy whānau can only be achieved through strong, connected and courageous communities. This takes focused effort, innovation, tenacity and generosity to share both in the burden and the successes”, says Chrissie, “But I’m up for the challenge and look forward to working with and for my iwi”.

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, Engari, he toa takitini

Success is not the work of one, but the work of many

“We are very fortunate to have Chrissie on our team”, says Ngahiwi Tomoana, Chair of the Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi Incorporated Board, and “On behalf of the Board and staff, I congratulate Chrissie for accepting this position and look forward to working alongside her expertise”
