Chris Godsiff

1st Vice President


Chris is proud to be 5th generation Marlburian on one side and 10th generation NZ, on the other side. He has an engineering background, closely followed by commercial fishing, aquaculture, viticulture and tourism, and hopefully finishing gracefully with retirement.

Chris’ wife, Sue, and two sons, Ryan & Ben, are all gainfully employed in the family business Marlborough Travel Ltd, which they started, and have operated for the last 25yrs, based in Marlborough. The business is committed to bringing both domestic and international visitors to experience the diverse and natural beauty of our province.

Chris is passionate, and totally dedicated to our region and on-going sustainable growth, through education and informed decision making.

The Chamber has an important role in our community as a link between businesses and council, it’s vital that the Chamber has a strong following in the business community as numbers give us strength and power to negotiate and influence our future for the well being of all our people.
