We are so excited to welcome Jen Scoular, Chief Executive of New Zealand Avocado.
Jen has been called the most enthusiastic CEO in New Zealand, thanks to her passion and drives to promote avocados, the industry, and the country. She has successfully raised both the profile and value of the industry and continues to advocate for growers in the primary industries.
Jen joined NZ Avocado after a four-year diplomatic posting heading the New Zealand Consulate in Hamburg, Germany. She was charged with driving commercial success for New Zealand exporters in Germany, Northern, and Eastern Europe, Russia and Turkey.
Before this, she spent seven years with Zespri, most latterly as Group Treasurer. In London, she became director of Barclays Capital following early roles with Unilever and IBM. These days, she and her family are happy to call Tauranga home.

Simply breath-taking, this exquisitely renovated, grand heritage villa commanding expansive views from the ridgeline has been superbly detailed for an extraordinary, lock-up and go, inner city lifestyle. The unique design blends masterful contemporary style with gorgeous maritime character in flowing sundrenched, north-facing spaces to ensure it is a compelling apartment alternative. At its heart, voluminous open living expands into a beautifully manicured, secluded sun-soaked garden courtyard for enchanted year-round entertaining. Bedrooms, including a dreamy master suite, along the wraparound balcony upstairs reward with spectacular sunsets over the inner harbour. And while you will fall in love with the bay windows, double french doors and a stunning feature window, this home is immensely functional. At night, retreat to a media room to watch TV. There is copious storage in a well-designed scullery off the chef's kitchen. Heated floors in marble tiled bathrooms add luxurious warmth. There is secure parking and an artist's studio for those with a creative bent. An outstanding location with Grey Lynn Park, Ponsonby, the Viaduct and the CBD within easy reach, makes this sublime treasure, THE one to covet.

There seems to be an increase in frequency of the police helicopter operation over the skys above my house. Pretty much on a daily basis for the last few weeks. Not sure if my close proximity to PMs house has anything to do with it or if this the new way the police handle their ops now. I'm all for catching the crim's but nothing bets police presence on the ground. Are we facing a massive increase in local crime??
