The National Army Museum welcomes two new staff to its team – Maggie Vine, as Office Administrator and Paul Elliott, Protective Services Manager.
Maggie comes to the Museum with much experience having worked with the NZ Army in administration based roles for over 12 years including the last 7 at the recently closed down McMahon Health Clinic. As a result of her hard work with the community Maggie was recently recognised with the awarding of a Commander’s TRADOC Commendation for her tireless dedication and work with the Waiouru community.
Since starting at the Museum Maggie says she has also renewed her interest to find out more about her father’s military history in the Pacific where he fought with the Australian Army on the Kokoda Trail campaign against the Japanese in World War II.
Paul brings much experience to his role as Protective Services Manager having come from a similar role in charge of security and Services at Massey University’s Wellington campus. As well as overseeing the Museum’s security, Paul also manages building maintenance services and support and health and safety.
