Tim Elley – Tim Elley Data
Outside of my professional life, I was in the Royal New Zealand Naval Volunteer Reserves (RNZNVR) for 31 years, becoming Commanding Officer of HMNZS Pegasus in 2007, and retiring from the RNZNVR in 2010.
In 2012 I picked up the role of Secretary for the Navy League Canterbury Inc. They are a charitable trust providing financial support for youth organisations (primarily Sea Cadets) in Canterbury, and advocating for maritime strategy.
I believe my years in the Navy have given me a sense of dedication, will to work and responsibility.
