Charles Taituha

I have worked in the rural servicing sector for over 15 years in various roles from the floor sweeper through to Senior Executive.  My passion has always been farming and the sustainable use of our land assets.  My core values are and have always been about the well being of our people, land and water.

I currently have advisory roles with a number of Māori and Non-Māori organisations that are based in the primary sector and I bring a large number of networks throughout the industry.
