Immediate Past President
Nikki moved to Blenheim in March 2000 with husband Tony and three sons, Alex, William and Richard. As well as being a full time mum, Nikki was owner/Director of Business Services Marlborough which provided administration services to a range of companies not only in Marlborough but also Wellington, Auckland and Nelson.
In 2006 Nikki sold the business and took on a full time position with Saint Clair Family Estate, one of Marlborough’s largest family owned wineries. She now holds the position of Chief Financial Officer for the company.
One of the main reasons for joining the Chamber Board in February 2010 was the Business Excellence Awards, a particular passion due to Saint Clair being winners of the 2008 MCOC Supreme Award followed by 2009 NZ Business Excellence Foundation, Business Achievement Award. Nikki wanted to help encourage all Marlborough businesses to not only have fantastic products and services but to also promote their own business excellence as the two work hand in hand.
Working with a dedicated team of people it is exciting to see the Marlborough Chamber of Commerce continuing to grow in membership, working with our sponsors to enhance the forums and programs already operational and see increasing numbers attending our speaker lunches. Nikki looks forward to meeting more Chamber members in the future as the Chamber continues to go from strength to strength.
