    Role: President

    Works for: House of Travel

    I joined CYP because of the opportunity to engage with other young people and the wider business community.

    As the current treasurer of CYP I want to promote sustainable growth for our organisation. I help the the committee to apply our resources effectively to create real value for CYP members.

    I work as the Internal Audit and Legal Compliance Manager at House of Travel.

  • Lauren Brent

    Role: Vice President

    Works for: Hatherly Loughnan

    I became a member of Canterbury Young Professionals with the objective of getting an early bird ticket to the annual ball. I soon realised that CYP had a lot more to offer than the chance to get dressed up for an evening! I joined the CYP Social Committee at the beginning of 2017 and since then have loved the opportunity to meet people both outside and within my own profession. I am excited to be involved in organising events which appeal to all our members and to continue to grow CYP by offering young professionals both local and new to Christchurch the opportunity to get involved and have some fun.
    Outside of CYP, I am an Associate at Hatherly Loughnan Lawyers.

    Role: General Committee

    Works for: AstraZeneca

    Originally from the UK, I came to NZ on a working holiday in 2014 and instantly became hooked on mountains, L&P, and pineapple lumps. I moved to Christchurch in 2015 after a short stint as a Hobbiton tour guide (yes you read that right) and began working as a respiratory sales representative for AstraZeneca in early 2016. Being alone on the road a lot CYP has been a great place for meeting like-minded people and I look forward to being more involved this year on the committee. If you see me don’t be shy, come say hello!

    Role: General Committee

    Works for: BVT

    I joined CYP to meet other professionals working in a wide range of industries and make new relationships that will benefit my career and social interests. I hope to do the same for others by organising events that will attract the diverse range of professionals in Christchurch.

    Outside of CYP I work as a Design Engineer for Enztec. My passions are skiing, biking, travel, and innovation.
