When it comes to business activity, Councillor Ross Harris predicts an exciting ride for Hauraki over the next few years. Recently taking the wheel as Economic Development Subcommittee Chair he’s keen to build on progress made by Deputy Mayor Toby Adams, who held the position for six years.

Adams has now stepped out of economic development to focus on his new finance portfolio and to chair the Community Services and Development Committee.

“Toby’s done a brilliant job of driving economic development across the District which is thriving as a result,” Harris said.

Growing up in a Hauraki farming family, Harris’ career highlights include stints as CEO of Thames Valley Rugby Union and FVC Veterinary Services. He looks forward to using his business skills and experience to continue to make the District a great place to live, work, visit and do business.

“It’s about getting out there and understanding the needs of the business community as well as the opportunities. My calendar is filling up fast!”
