Nicola Willis is a proud Wellingtonian, former business leader, arts-lover and mother of four.
Nicola was born here, went to school in Karori and graduated from Vic University. She has worked extensively in Wellington’s thriving public sector. Prior to this campaign, Nicola led a team at Fonterra focused on reducing the environmental impact of farming.
Nicola and her husband are raising their family in Wellington because they believe it is a great place to bring up children. They love this city’s diverse communities, protected green spaces and fantastic job opportunities.
Wellington’s economy is on the march. The city has emerged as a growing hub for tech and innovation. Enterprise and entrepreneurship are the engines of our economic growth. Wellington is home to New Zealand’s world-class public service, with talent that is the envy of other countries.
Nicola is passionate about promoting Wellington and advocating for its future. She looks forward to speaking with you, to understand your issues and ideas.
