The Auckland Hockey Board this week welcomed Mark Robinson on to the Board as an appointed member.
Mark is the former Managing Director and owner of Avery Robinson Ltd, a company he co-founded in 1997. Avery Robinson Ltd were the sole distributors for Dyson Appliances within NZ for 21 years. He has a Bachelor of Social Science from the University of Waikato, and has previous governance experience as a member of the Board of Trustees of Cockle Bay Primary School as well as being a Trustee of the Woolf Fisher Trust & Woolf Fisher Charitable Trust and in 2021 began work as a Trustee of the Second Nature Charitable Trust in Manukau City.
Mark started back playing Hockey in 2017 with HPHC after a long break from the sport. In 2020 he was selected and played for the Auckland 40’s Men’s Masters team in Christchurch.
Mark is married to wife Rebecca (who plays for the Masters Women’s Club and has also represented Auckland Masters) and they have two daughters, Jessica and Emily all of whom play hockey. He is very much looking forward to joining the Auckland Hockey Board and helping to grow and further develop Hockey in Auckland.
CEO Manoj Daji welcomed Mark and said “we are very fortunate to have someone of Mark’s calibre and business experience join our strong highly credentialed Board and I have no doubt he will add considerable value to Auckland Hockey stakeholders as we work towards our new 2023-2027 Strategic Plan.
