Jenny Jackson – Te Akau Business Manager
Jenny has been involved with Te Akau Stud since ‘marrying in to the district’ and in fact worked alongside David Ellis before her now-adult children were born. Taking time off to raise her children, after they left school as successful and talented young New Zealanders, Jenny returned to Te Akau Stud in a full-time role.
Jenny was appointed Business Manager for the Te Akau operation in 2022 – after almost 30 years working for Te Akau either full or part time.
Jenny is a true asset to not only Te Akau Stud but also the local community being a volunteer firefighter. She was appointed as a Justice of the Peace (JP) in 2021.
Te Akau principal David Ellis CNZM said: “It’s such a pleasure to have Jenny working for Te Akau – she is someone who we have a long history with and Karyn and I enjoy her incredibly loyalty, her ‘get things done’ attitude and her intelligent approach to every aspect of life as well as our business – she is a true asset who we are so grateful to have in the team”.
