We hope you will join us in extending her a warm welcome. Melissa has a background of working in the events industry as well as having held leadership roles in various New Zealand and international companies since 1997. With her strong engagement in fundraising for charities and organisations, in particular ones that support and empower women and children, she is strongly driven to make a positive difference in her community. Combined with her governance experience, she will build on the solid foundation of support and provide leadership for CMRF in the future.

Melissa comments: “I’m delighted to join the highly capable team at CMRF and build on our rich history over the last 60 years of supporting better health outcomes for the people of Canterbury and the world through investing in leading edge medical research. I’ll be working closely with Barbara and Aleisha to grow and evolve our fundraising, partnerships, memberships and community engagement.”

Please introduce yourselves to Melissa as she is looking forward to meeting you all at one of our upcoming events, or feel free to connect with her directly on either [email protected] or 353 1240
