Our people

Dedicated to Masterton

Our eight elected Trustees and small management team is dedicated to serving our tenants through quality property, maintaining and growing the Trust’s assets and maximising returns to its owners, the people of Masterton.

Our Board of Trustees is responsible to its shareholders, the people of urban Masterton. The management team, led by Andrew Croskery, reports to the Board.

The Board of Trustees is elected by voters living within the Masterton Small Farms Settlement boundaries. Four Trustees retire at each triennial local body election. The Chairperson is elected by the members.
The Board meets formally 10 times per year, with additional meetings scheduled as necessary. Sub-committees meet as required. Trustee remuneration is determined by the New Zealand Remuneration Authority.
