Iain Hines

Director of Peter McKenzie Project at J R McKenzie Trust (New Zealand)

Iain Hines works at the J R McKenzie Trust. His main role is in a project attempting to reduce the number of children and families in poverty. Earlier this year he stepped down from the role of Executive Director, which he held for more years than you need to know. Prior to that he was a social worker, and manager of a community organisation working in the mental health field. He was awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 2002 to study aspects of philanthropy. He was on the Ngāi Tahu Fund Committee, and a Board member of Philanthropy New Zealand, each for ten years.

Iain strongly supports the J R McKenzie Trust’s vision of ‘a socially just and inclusive Aotearoa New Zealand’, and is both curious and determined about how philanthropy can help achieve that.

Iain lives in Wellington. His wife and four children delight him. Almost always.
