In very exciting news we are pleased to announce that Anne Fitisemanu has been appointed CEO of TupuToa, replacing acting Executive Director, Rhys Faleafa, who will step down at the end of October.
Anne brings with her a significant background in public health, not-for-profit, advocacy and leadership and joins us having been the Community Manager for Pacific Health at Counties-Manukau DHB for the past five years. She is also an alumnus of the Global Women Breakthrough Leaders Programme.
TupuToa has an ambitious goal of 350 interns by 2020 and Anne’s expertise in establishing major initiatives through growth phases will be invaluable to the programme. Anne is also a terrific collaborator, which will be a great fit with our valued Māori and Pasifika communities.
