Pacific Trade Invest NZ farewells Chief Investment Officer Manuel Valdez

1 September 2021 –

Pacific Trade Invest NZ (PTI NZ) announced the retirement of long-time employee Manuel Valdez on Monday.

Mr Valdez began his tenure at PTI NZ in 2007, as Investment Marketing Executive and throughout the years rose to the role of Chief Investment Officer. Trade Commissioner Glynis Miller said, “Manuel played an instrumental role in PTI NZ’s journey over the past decade and a half. His contribution and achievements during this period have my deepest respect. Brokering investment deals is a challenge in itself.

“Manuel’s experience in the role brought to bear substantive returns in investment for businesses in the Blue Pacific. He has shown remarkable passion and dedication to the region.”

Manuel’s colleagues were unreserved in praising him as a key member of their team. He was farewelled by staff and colleagues of the Pacific Trade Invest Global Network. Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat Director Zarak Khan and other key associates from his time at PTI NZ were also present.

PTI NZ’s investment programme is currently under the responsibility of Graeme Saunders who can be contacted via graeme27saunders@gmail.com for all investment inquiries.
