Helga Perry has been appointed to the role of Trust Manager of Greytown District Trust Lands Trust.

Board Chair, Phil Holden, is delighted to confirm the appointment. “Helga has been the Trust’s administrator for the last eight years and has an intimate knowledge of the operational activities of the organisation,” explained Holden. “She is well known in the local community, and we see this as another positive move in our drive to achieve a higher level of engagement with our stakeholders.”

“We have recently put in place a new strategic plan and investment strategy, and this will provide the organisation with a clear direction as the Trust heads into its 150th year.  We’ve listened and taken feedback from our community. Our new strategic goals reflect this, and we are determined to deliver on outcomes that make a real difference for our beneficiaries, while ensuring the business is ready for its next 150 years,” he said.

Interim General Manager, Paul Broughton, has done an excellent job in addressing some of the portfolio issues and has been retained by the board as its property advisor.

“These changes enable us to put in place a management cost structure that reflects where we are in terms of our current investment portfolio,” added Holden. “Helga’s appointment is an important step towards the next phase of the Trust’s journey.”

Perry will step into the role from 1 July 2021.
