Nau mai. Haere mai e Tuhi!
We are pleased to welcome Tuhi Leef to Pillars Ka Pou Whakahou as our new General Manager.
Tuhi hails from the north (Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Whātua) and lives in Tāmaki Makaurau with his wife and four children.
Over the last few years Tuhi has used his strong financial services background to help several hundred Māori, Pasifika and NZ whānau improve their financial literacy; mainly assisting families with budgeting, savings and debt reduction plans.
He has also spent time with the whānau of people serving a sentence to help them improve their financial situation.
More recently Tuhi led a multi-disciplinary team that provided wrap around support for youth offenders and ram raiders.
Tuhi is excited to bring his experience to support the mahi of our Pillars team so they can continue to help our whānau and tamariki to achieve better outcomes.
We are excited to continue the legacy of Pillars with Tuhi leading the charge, creating positive futures for all children of people in prison across Aotearoa.
