Andrew McLean works as an investment adviser with Craigs Investment Partners in the Palmerston North office. Andrew first experienced the concept of a Community Foundation when he worked in the Tauranga office of Craigs Investment Partners, with the Company being a keen supporter of the Acorn Foundation. With a move back to the Manawatu, Andrew was keen to be involved in setting up a similar entity in the Horizons Regional Council area, which to date has not developed its own Community Foundation. Having grown up in the region, Andrew is a keen supporter of what the area has to offer. As a Founding Trustee, the groundwork is now being laid for the future benefit of generations to come.
Andrews wife, Denise and their two children have been instrumental in establishing Replay, a community based charity that is involved in the recycling of used sports equipment.
