You may have seen Irene on the corner of Richmond Road and Surrey Crescent when she was helping her daughter Natalie run The Floral Studio (now an e-commerce store). Or you may see her on TV or in the print media talking about New Zealand's aviation industry.
Irene has many talents, including holding a Master of Economics and an MBA. Another role is co-ordinating Grey Lynn & Around. She took on the position 12 months ago, when we were known as the Grey Lynn Business Association, and continues with our new brand identity Grey Lynn & Around.
Irene retired as CEO of Aviation New Zealand in 2014 but runs IQ Aviation, a consulting company operating in the safety management and aviation regulatory/lobbying space. She is also Past President of Zonta Auckland and part of the Zonta International movement for women’s rights.
