The Senior Leadership Team

Our vision, our wawata, is to continue to grow, to embrace new opportunities providing sector leading service in an economic, social and environmentally sustainable manner.

Chief Executive Officer

Vicki Lee

The Napier District Masonic Trust appointed Vicki Lee as their Chief Executive Officer in May 2022.

Vicki is an experienced businesswoman and enthusiastic philanthropist. She has held CEO and Board positions on both sides of the Tasman and internationally. Her career spans senior leadership positions in various industries, from health to hospitality and each one encompasses service to the community.

When asked why the charity sector? Vicki explained “From a young age my father instilled in me the importance of giving back to the community, and I like to think that giving back has become part of my DNA.

Throughout my career I have taken this philosophy and grown my commitment both personally and professionally.”

Her previous roles have provided opportunities to develop and deepen existing skills that are relevant to her role with Napier District Masonic Trust.

Vicki says “there’s a lot to do and I’m privileged to lead the team into this exciting growth phase.”


Clinical Services Manager

Katrina Miller

A career in the health sector became an aspiration for eight-year-old Katrina, when as a cadet of the Order of St John she realised the valuable skills learned could make a difference in helping others.

Katrina’s first nursing role was in a rest home, and she had found her vocation.

“I learnt quickly that policy and procedures supported an environment of continuous improvement, and from this, quality, became my passion. I want to make a positive difference; I want our residents to see our facilities as their home.”

When not working Katrina enjoys spending time with family and exploring the many Hawke’s Bay cycle tracks.

Finance & Operations Manager

Arthur Keane

Arthur is originally from Dunedin and most recently from Auckland. He made the decision to settle in Hawke’s Bay after spending many months in the region following Cyclone Gabriel.
Arthur is a qualified accountant with many years of operational management experience across a variety of different industries including several years in manufacturing and the education sector and most recently 10 years in the aged care and retirement village sector looking after and caring for our seniors. “Providing care in a way that I would like for my mum and dad is what I want to see delivered daily.”
Arthur’s interests include caravanning, spending time with family and drinking good gin and wine. We agree with Arthur when he tells us Hawke’s Bay is a great choice to support all of these.
“Having been given the opportunity to join the Trust, it is my desire to see their great work develop and continue strongly into the future, with the residents at the centre of everything we do.”

Human Resources Manager

Michelle Knox

Michelle is an experienced HR Practitioner who has held a variety of operational HR roles over her career. Having found a passion for working in the healthcare sector several years ago, Michelle returned to our industry in 2021 following a period working as an HR Consultant and “loves working for an organisation that is so focussed on helping others and supporting our community with such vital services”.

Michelle is invested in creating a workplace that everyone loves to work in and wants to be a part of.

Outside of work Michelle has a number of creative interests and loves spending time with her young family.

Property Maintenance Manager

Dave Hall

Dave has been part of the establishment at NDMT for more than 15 years.  For most of those years he was contracted as the Property and Maintenance Supervisor.

If you ask Dave what has kept him involved with the Trust for so long, he is likely to respond very simply that he “enjoys the work”.   Dig a bit further and he talks about how the charitable environment of the Trust suits his philosophy in life “its about making a worthwhile difference to the residents standard of living”.

When not working for the Trust, Dave loves to garden and enjoys his motorbikes, he owns three.  His skills as an artist are much admired on the office walls at the NDMT, unfortunately in recent years he hasn’t found the time needed to continue producing more creative artwork.
