Tamarapa Lloyd 
I’m a problem solver who is passionate about the Māori sector and improving Māori outcomes by applying citizen centric design to business challenges.

I have experience in service design, operating model design, large scale programme delivery, strategic planning, feasibility assessments and programme and organisational reviews.


Mana Newton   CA 

I care deeply about Māori business development and growth.  Māori entities focus on more than economic returns but have social and cultural objectives to develop their whanau, hapu, and iwi. 

My goal is to help Māori with strategic advice to ensure that we can achieve our social and cultural objectives through economic success.  This is achieved through a virtual Chief Financial Officer model where my team and I work within Māori entities and assist with the management of investments under a Māori kaupapa. Our clients are our whānau and by working side by side with them we build a strong relationship as a trusted advisor.  When Māori succeed we all succeed.  Ngā mihi atu ki a koutou katoa.
