Wellington lawyer, Nikki Bloomfield, was appointed to the Trust in 2019.
Nikki has held a number of senior corporate legal roles, mainly in the energy sector and is currently a consultant with legal services firm Lawyers on Demand She brings a wealth of commercial accumen to Project Crimson, in a time of rapid growth for the Trust.
A sense of justice is what motivated Nikki to study law. “I always thought that this would just apply to people, but with New Zealand’s biodiversity on its knees, it turns out I can help fight for justice for our flora and fauna too,” says Nikki.
Nikki is also a founding trustee of Cultivate – a mentoring programme which supports early career women to navigate the modern work place, in particular the structures that make it harder for women to access equal opportunities and equal pay.
