Board - banner

The Topaz board is charged with setting strategy, direction and policy for Topaz, and is ultimately responsible for the staff and their priorities.

Topaz is a New Zealand company owned and operated by two shareholders. The two owners are also board members, having formed the company in 1992 - they both still play a central role in the day-to-day management and operation of the business. A close-knit management team ensures each area of our business continues to perform.
