Project Lead – Career Progression
Kia Ora and Talofa lava,
Tony Atina after eights years at the helm of NZMA Trades, and opening three successful campuses since 2013, it was time for a change to further grow and discover new possibilities for the industry but also for the people: “He aha te mea nui o tea o, he tangata he tangata he tangata”
Bringing to the role is a strong passion for the Trades industry with significant experience in this sector coupled with most recent experiences starting and leading large and diverse Trades Training Campuses(NZMA) and teams, with long standing relationships with the applicable stakeholders.
“I am a strong advocate and actively contribute to helping to make the lives of others abundant and am fortunate to be Project Lead for Career Progression, as this resonates of my own journey and progression. Having left school with no formal qualification, other than first fifteen, followed by years as a mischievous teen, personal family tragedy triggered the need to find purpose. It was found on a construction site with a start from scratch attitude that led to running my own business, marriage, father of 3 boys, mortgages, and life goals to achieve!”
To be able to assist in developing meaningful change, and create successful pathways aligns strongly not to just my career aspirations but my values as an individual.
I look forward to engaging with the team and meeting you all soon.
Faafetai lava, Nga mihi nui.
