Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki Chairperson Harry Mikaere today announced the appointment of Tammy Dehar (Ngāti Tamaterā, Ngāti Maru) as the Manukura Hauora (Chief Executive) of the organisation.

Mr Mikaere said there had been wide interest in the role, which became available when previous Manukura Hauora Riana Manuel moved to lead the newly formed Māori Health Authority.

“We welcome the mātauranga, pūkengatanga and mana that Tammy will bring to the role and we are delighted to have appointed such a capable candidate from amongst our own Iwi” said Mr Mikaere.

“This is an exciting time for the health sector, with system-wide reforms driving transformational change and locality approaches shifting focus toward equity and priority populations, in particular Māori” said Mr Mikaere.

Tammy comes to the role with many years of executive experience in the Hauora Māori domain, most recently as Leader, Strategic Projects with National Hauora Coalition. Her strong commitment to pro-equity, anti-racist and values-based organisations seeks to ensure they thrive and make a positive impact in the lives and wellbeing of whānau and hāpori.  

“I am genuinely excited to be joining Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki whānui and its vision of ‘Hauraki as a healthy nation’.  I was drawn to this role, not only because of my whakapapa, but the fact that the kaupapa aligns with my personal values and strongly reflects my personal and professional philosophy” said Tammy.

Tammy will be based in Thames and takes up her role with Te Korowai Hauora o Hauraki in the week beginning 23 May 2022.
