General Manager Administration
Allan is responsible for administration; infrastructure; broker and office support. He spent many years in Marketing and Brand Management with a major multinational and was seconded to the United Kingdom for a period of time. He was General Manager for a company operating throughout New Zealand and the UK. His background has given him extensive experience in Business Management, Human Resources and Marketing at both a national and international level.
Over the past 20 years Allan has spent untold hours performing as a tenor with Canterbury Opera and Southern Opera. He turned his musical talent into a profession as General Manager in arts management before his appointment in 2005 as General Manager – Administration at Runacres and Associates Limited.
When Allan thinks nobody is around you could hear an aria floating through the office. His other loves are ships and shipping.
