I am the owner and managing director of RoMack Industries Ltd, we are an import export company. We export high quality PNG food and products to NZ. We also export high quality NZ products to Papua New Guinea from the Food, Education and Machinery areas.

I am Currently the Deputy Chairmen of the NZ PNG Business Council.

I have a strong background in indigenous youth and development. I have a BA in Māori Development and 9 years experience in the New Zealand public sector. In the last 3 years, my scope of work has broadened to development work in Papua New Guinea, with a particular focus on economic development with my wife’s people in Milne Bay Papua New Guinea.

My experience stems from work in the forestry, tourism and export sectors before moving into the public sector in sustainable employment, youth development and indigenous development.

My wife and I have established RoMack Industries and over the last 3 years, I have networked with a range of New Zealand and Papua New Guinean organizations to develop business relationships between Māori and the people of Papua New Guinea.
