Ché initially joined Craigmore in early 2010 to build Craigmore’s first business – Craigmore Forestry. However, over the past nine years Ché has used his diverse experience to build Craigmore’s core capability to invest in, grow and operate truly sustainable forestry, farming and horticultural businesses. In addition, Ché chairs the Investment Board for one of New Zealand’s largest indigenous trusts, which specialises in real assets (energy, farming) and tourism. He also is one of three founding Trustees of Te Puna Taiao, a charitable organisation transforming outdoor environs at schools in lower socio-economic areas into interactive learning spaces for students and wider communities.
