Alastair Rhodes

Chief Executive

I joined the fantastic BayTrust family in February 2015 after spending two years as CEO of Rotorua International Airport and previously holding senior commercial roles in Air NZ.  My family and I moved from Auckland down to the Bay of Plenty in 2013 and I now reside in Arataki which is between the Mount and Papamoa and within walking distance to the ocean.  I have a huge amount of passion for the Bay of Plenty and truly believe it is one of the best places in the world to raise a family.  BayTrust has played a meaningful role in the Bay of Plenty over the last 25 years and I look forward to continuing this tradition and taking the organisation to the next level in the future.  Please feel free to contact me on any issues or opportunities at any time.

Community Research and Evaluation Specialist

I have lived in beautiful Tauranga since 2014 and feel privileged to have been part of the wonderful BayTrust whānau since June 2018. My background is in community psychology, strategic planning and evaluation, and have over the last 30 years worked in the not-for-profit, private and government sectors, from grass-roots to EU level. I have supported various organisations over the years in both hands-on and governance roles and continue to enjoy and see value in this work. I have two boys, two cats and love science fiction books and movies, vege gardening and have an inexplicable penchant for pantomimes and absolutely believe the Bay of Plenty is the best place to be!
