We are very excited to welcome on two new members of the team, Rose-Marie Schiavuzzi and Kendall Green. Rose-Marie has come on board as our Development Manager and Kendall as a Marketing and Fundraising Executive.
Rose-Marie has worked in Corporate Sponsorship for many years both here in New Zealand and Australia. Her roles have focused on developing sponsorship, business opportunities, and stakeholder management. Rose-Marie says she was motivated to join the team for many reasons, “I have a belief in the service; knowing that the team and crew are all wanting the same outcome, to make a difference in our community and more importantly to save lives.” Rose-Marie notes that working for a charitable organization is very rewarding, “My favourite part of the job is the sense of pride and coming to work each day to make a difference.” When she is not working with the Trust, Rose- Marie loves to spend time with her family, cook and is an avid gardener.
Kendall has come straight out of University and into the team. Fresh off of studying for a Bachelor of Commerce, Kendall is keen to jump into the fundraising world and start making a difference, “I am so excited, I love working hard to help our team on the front line save lives every day.” Kendall’s background includes digital marketing and strategy, but she says that face to face communication is invaluable, “I have worked a lot in the online world, but I most value sitting down with someone and having a conversation in person.” In her spare time, Kendall enjoys playing volleyball and socializing with friends.
The Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust welcomes both of our two new team members on board!
