I was born in Whanganui in 1974 and was raised by my grandmother, Vera Hurimoni Tanerau-Love, formerly Vera Hurimoni Arthur of Rātana Pā/Waikawa Pā (Bay). My Koro is Hamarama Tanerau-Love (Lambie), he was the eldest son of the Keni Hector line (Utiku).
I am a husband, father, and grandfather. From the age of 22, my wife Kara and I developed a successful labour contracting business, operating out of Marlborough. During those years we also owned and operated two hospitality businesses. More recently we developed a small artisan beekeeping and honey packing business. These days I am Group Manager at Williams Trellis, which manufactures and supplies products nationwide. I oversee a great team at two separate manufacturing facilities – one in Blenheim and the other in Putāruru in Waikato.
It is my honour to serve my iwi as a member of Te Ātiawa o Te Waka-a-Māui Trust. I am always willing to listen and work hard, my primary focus is to ensure the financial longevity of our people.
