After a highly successful search and selection programme which started in February the RCW Eureka! Trust Board has appointed two new independent Trustees, Tim von Dadelszen and Jennifer Rutherford.

The Selection Panel was so impressed by what Tim and Jennifer will bring to the Board they asked the Settlor of the Trust, The Rotary Club of Wellington, to change the Trust Deed to allow the Board to make two appointments instead of filling just the vacancy which arose at the beginning of the year with the resignation of Dr Charlotte Severne.

Tim and Jennifer both have extensive careers and experience in startups and entrepreneurship especially in the science and technology space which is crucial to our programme.  They will bring very complementary skill sets and networks to the Trust and we look forward to the positive contribution they will make.
