Farewell, Jenny

Jenny Prince 1

After seven years as Chief Executive of the Plunket, Jenny Prince will step down from the role this month to spend more time with her own family. 

Jenny Prince has lead Plunket as our Chief Executive for seven years, though her journey began over 30 years ago. Starting off as a volunteer, Jenny then became a Plunket nurse working with families in Clendon, South Auckland. After studying business management she took on operational and senior management roles at Plunket. In 2009 she became Plunket’s very first female CE.

Jenny’s passion for Plunket has seen it develop to be better positioned to help New Zealand families. From her involvement in the government’s Children’s Action Plan, to being the chief proponent of using technology to drive a more effective service, Jenny has helped Plunket move towards increasing positive health outcomes for kiwi children.

“I’m proud and humbled to lead Plunket. It’s a privilege to work in partnership with New Zealand families and communities to help give their young children the best start in life,” said Jenny Prince. “I feel seven years is a good length of time for a CE to lead an organisation, and I have made the decision to step down at a moment where Plunket is poised to take the next step in its journey towards ensuring the best start for every child. The recent arrival of my first grandchild has played a part in the timing of my decision and I’m looking forward to spending more time with my family.”

Thank you, Jenny, for your incredible contribution to Plunket. We wish you and your family every happiness for the future.
