General Manager

Rick brings to the position of General Manager vast experience from the education and sport sector.

His long career in education included Principalships of schools in Auckland south, along with working for the NZ & Cook Islands Governments as Quality Services Manager of education of the remote Northern Group of islands.

On the sporting front Rick was a Counties Manukau, Northern Districts and New Zealand Black Cap cricket selector for a number of years and whilst living in the Cook Islands took up the same role with their national team.

A former Director of Counties Manukau Sport Foundation, Counties Manukau Rugby Football Union, Counties Manukau TV Cometz ( National Netball franchise)  and The Counties Manukau Jetz (National Bartercard Cup Rugby League franchise), Rick has knowledge and experience from the “coal face” to the Board Room, all in Auckland south.

Using his experience Rick mentors prisoners at Springhill Corrections Centre, helping in their rehabilitation for reintegration back into the community.  This is a role that gives him a lot of satisfaction to be able to make a difference.

This experience and knowledge of Auckland south is a perfect fit for his role with FYFOD.
