New Trustee for Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust

The Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust is excited to welcome Darrin Muggeridge to the board.

Darrin, a successful New Plymouth businessman and owner of The Plymouth International Hotel and Auto Lodge Motor Inn, has extensive business and governance experience. Born and bred in Taranaki, Darrin and his wife Anna have brought up their four daughters in New Plymouth and continues to call the region home.

Darrin was on the New Plymouth Girls’ High School Board of Trustees for 12 years and Board Chair for 10, is Chair of the school’s Centenary Trust and has been on the board for the New Plymouth Operatic Society also for 10 years. He sits on other community boards including the Taranaki Musical Theatre Trust and the Music Innovation Trust of Taranaki, for which he is both Chair.

An active sponsor of the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter, Darrin says his appointment to the board is an opportunity to give back to the community he lives and works in. “As a business owner, supporting and giving back to the community we do business in is important, and the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust is an organisation that has an impact on the wider Taranaki community.”
