Tim Mulcare

Tim Mulcare has a PhD specialising in economic history and industrial organisation, and skills in research, analysis and evaluation as well as general facilitation and business mentoring. Tim undertook teaching and research roles at Victoria University of Wellington over the 1990's before moving to Te Puni Kokiri, where amongst other things he helped lead the design and management of the Maori Business Facilitation Service in its formative years. He is currently Chief Executive Officer of Tautoko Enterprise Support, a business mentoring organisation that delivers business assistance services, including the Maori Tourism Mentoring Programme for the Ministry of Tourism in 2009/10.

Tim affiliates to Ngati Tama and also has links to the upper Whanganui river. He lives at Ngunguru on the Tutukaka Coast, and is married with four children. His interests include farm-forestry, mountain biking, snow-boarding and most water sports, including being part-owner of a classic 32 foot kauri launch moored around the Rawhiti Peninsular in the Bay of Islands. He has travelled extensively in Europe, Australia and South-East Asia and believes he knows what is needed to make a truly memorable tourism experience. He is looking forward to bringing his analytical, network and facilitation skills to help advance the cause of Maori and cultural tourism in Taitokerau.
