Welcome from CEO, Vui Mark Gosche
Vaka Tautua in 2015 is an organisation facing the future with many changes from its previous year. I began as CEO in July 2014 after 5 years as a board member for the organisation.
In the second half of last year we shifted our head office from Ellerslie to Papatoetoe into a building jointly owned by our shareholder trusts PIASS and Malologa. At the same time we began the replacement of our IT system which has improved our efficiency and made life easier for our staff as they do their valuable work in the community.
Our senior staff changed too with Kristina Sofele and Kate Donley joining me in ensuring the day to day operations run smoothly and our long term strategies are implemented.
In Wellington and Christchurch our team leaders Teina Powell, Les Atoni and Kaingo Tupou work with us to provide a national service to Pacific people.
Our communications through our regular newsletter, Facebook and this website enable us to get our message out to the fast growing Pacific population in NZ.
Our staff will continue to provide service to the community with dedication and commitment that comes from the heart coupled with the skills and expertise each of them brings.
Vui Mark Gosche
