Na­dine has been a di­rec­tor of NZ Ap­ples & Pears for eight years and was ap­pointed chair in Au­gust 2012. Her lead­er­ship and hard work was cred­ited for help­ing the in­dus­try well on its way to $1 bil­lion by 2020.

As one of her first ini­tia­tives as chair, Na­dine worked with board and man­age­ment to es­tab­lish a new strate­gic plan for the in­dus­try. In 2013 the clear plan was set around key driv­ers of in­dus­try suc­cess, in­clud­ing trade and mar­ket­ing ac­cess and sea­sonal em­ploy­ment, with an over­ar­ch­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions plan to tell the pipfruit story. The awards cer­e­mony was told that the re­cent suc­cess of the in­dus­try was down to this good plan­ning sup­ported by or­chardist work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tively with in­dus­try body NZ Ap­ples & Pears. Na­dine’s lead­er­ship through­out was tan­gi­ble, real and ef­fec­tive. She leads from the front, in­sists on high stan­dards and took on the dif­fi­cult tasks her­self. The meet­ing was told Na­dine’s out­stand­ing lead­er­ship skills were crit­i­cal to the suc­cess ap­ples and pears have en­joyed over the past eight years.

▴ Na­dine Tun­ley is con­grat­u­lated by NZ Ap­plesv and Pears chair­man Richard Punter and Andy Bor­land of Mr Ap­ple, Hawke’s Bay.
