Renay Charteris


Renay has a background in finance and community development,  and specialises in administration, communications, marketing and event management


Working with Cain and Kia Ora Consulting was an easy choice for us when considering Pēke Kā. We needed both a strategic thinker, as well as someone with the capabilities to execute on plans at the ground level and Cain certainly fulfilled this requirement. This was demonstrated through his professionalism, operational performance, general initiative, communication, and creativity – a rare skill set to find in one individual.


Cain also understood and aligned with our values and mission as a social enterprise, understanding the landscape which we work in. This was vital for us as the work required wasn’t only about economic growth, it was also about social enhancement and progression. Cain understood this and forged the relationships we needed to achieve this greater goal. I’m looking forward for the opportunity to work with Kia Ora Consulting again!
