Jacinta was selected to participate in the Institute of Directors’ Future Directors programme and joined the board of Just Life Group in that capacity in 2022.
The Future Directors programme aims to develop the next generation of directors by providing those with governance potential and ambition the opportunity to participate on a board. It also provides boards with exposure to new talent, ideas, and experiences.
Future Directors attend board meetings to observe and participate in discussions, but they do not have voting rights.
Jacinta is currently a senior Procurement Manager for the Ministry for Pacific Peoples where she uses her well-honed skills to deliver high-quality and effective procurement. She is often commended for her ability to look beyond the obvious and to consider the broader implications of a variety of situations.
Jacinta is a Trustee of the Manurewa High School Business Academy Board, and it was there that Tony first met her. On her successful appointment as future director, he said, “Jacinta is an outstanding appointee who has already shown herself to be an achiever and leader in her work and the community”
