Judy Whiteman
Network Connector

Judy is an alumnus of Leadership Victoria (LV) on which Leadership NZ is based. She brings over 30 years’ experience as a corporate executive, NFP volunteer, board member and consultant. Judy is passionate about helping people achieve the success they desire. She has worked in several countries with her career. Alongside her business career, she has been involved in the NFP sector in several countries. Governance roles in NZ include Independent Trustee of PSN, Independent Director Bank of India NZ and Te Waipuna Puawai.

Based in NZ since late 2000, Judy began working independently in 2003 building a portfolio of work in both the profit and NFP sectors. It’s her experience, contacts in, and understanding of both of these sectors that she brings to Leadership NZ.

LV was a pivotal experience for her and even though she has not lived in Australia for over 20 years, she still remains connected. When she found out that something like this was being developed in NZ she leapt at the chance to be involved and has continued to be so in various ways through to today where she is Network Connector.

After 15 years in NZ Judy considers herself to be a mix of Aussie and Kiwi and calls herself a “kozzie” – a Kiwi Aussie (although the 2013 group nicknamed her “Kanga Kiwi”).
