Gerald brings a strong mix of skills and experience to the Director role.

He has led teams and managed operations in the public, private and non-profit sectors, and consulted to public and non-profit organisations on strategy, leadership, business improvement and change.

Gerald worked with Anne Tuohy on the organisational changes she introduced at TCI in 2013, and facilitated two staff gatherings, as well as a TCI Council strategy conversation. Gerald’s most recent role was General Manager for the Catholic Diocese of Dunedin. His previous roles were all based in Wellington.

Gerald's initial twelve-month contract has been extended to December 2018. His focus will be on leading TCI through the transition to a new single provider of Catholic tertiary education, announced by the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference in late 2017. 

Gerald continues to work alternate weeks in Wellington and Dunedin, where he lives.
