Maori Woman Rises to Top Position in Multi-Million Dollar Company

After 33 years as a New Zealand family-governed business, JT Property Wash (JTPW) has proudly appointed Justine Tupara as their new CEO.

Justine, (Ngati Raukawa, Ngati Tuwharetoa, Ngai Te Rangi, and Ngai Taamanuhiri) has always had a great ambition to run a large company, but even she couldn’t have imagined achieving it in her mid-thirties:

“I became a mum quite young, which for a lot of people, instantly spelled the end of all of my career goals. I, however, was determined not to let statistics and prejudice define the direction of my life. In part, that’s down to the hugely positive influences of my mum and dad. I fully believe that you are a product of your environment and I had a fantastic one. I get my drive to succeed from my mum and aim to be as successful as she is both personally and professionally. I worked hard to get where I am today and will continue to do so in my new role.”

Ray Tomlinson started JTPW in 1985, alongside his father Joe. Since then, the company has gone from strength to strength. As it continued to evolve Ray knew it was time for a change in leadership, to propel their multi-million dollar company forward even more: “Justine is the perfect person to take our family’s company to the next level. For the past five years, she has implemented world-class systems and processes which have been key to our recent growth and preparation for the future. She brings fresh ideas while fully promoting family values within our staff, and in the service we provide to our loyal customers.”

Justine can’t wait to lead the company she’s thrived in: “I am honoured to have been appointed as CEO. I have grown a lot here at JT Property Wash, thanks to unwavering support from my directors Ray and Joe. They have always encouraged my personal development, supported my ideas, and made me feel like an integral part of the business. I believe inclusive workplaces like ours really let people thrive.”

JTPW operates nationwide, and are experts in commercial building washing, abseiling, and moss and mould control. The decision to promote Justine aligns with JTPW’s positioning as industry leaders – in both Health & Safety and technology. They made headlines in 2016, by launching the world’s first automated building wash machine, to enhance safety at work and protect the environment.
