Level One - back to normality!!


From our new Manager

This is an overdue introduction of myself as your newly appointed Manager.

My name is Lee Davis.  I spent the first 45 years of my life in Gisbourne forging a career in Hospitality including 7 years self employed as a Retail/Wholesale Wine Merchant with my last 10 years working up to Secretary Manager of the Gisborne Cosmopolitan Club.

In 2004 I was approached by the Blenheim Workingmen's Club who were looking for an experienced Manager to help them progress their vision of merging three separate societies into new purpose build facilities on the then exisiting RSA site.

The opportunity was too good to miss so I relocated my family (Maria and three children) to Blenheim and our new journey commenced.

In September 2007 the new Clubrooms were completed (including a Council funded Convention Centre on the ground floor), the societies were merged and the formation of the Clubs of Marlborough was born.

After 16 years in Blenheim with the last of our children leaving the nest and succumbing to Maria's growing desire over the previous two years to shift back to the North Island to be closer to her aging parents in Gisborne and our daughter in Auckland, we decided to move and for a variety reasons Maria had her heart set on Tauranga as a central location between the two, but also realised that it would be my work and work availability as to where we would actually shift to.

So, it was share delight wehen we heard of the vision of the Tauranga Citizens Club and their search for a new Manager to assist progressing their vision of the future that turned into absolute joy when my application was successful.

So here we are, happy wife, two dogs, no more siblings at home, a wonderful Club with a heart driven by a Committee with a passion for sustainablity and growth and supported by a dedicated team of staff.

I am very much looking forward to working with the Committee, Staff and Members to assist in every way I can in progressing and growing the future of the Tauranga Citizens Club and I equally look forward to meeting you all in the days ahead.

Cheers Lee
