Cliff Colquhon

Manager of CBEC since inception in 1989

A community enterprise based in the Far North of NZ.

The reason for establishing CBEC is quite simple, our generation will be the last that can assume an improved standard of living. Civilisation is at a crossroad, we can continue to be sedated by distractions and sensationalism or we can stop and seriously review our negative impact on nature and our community (starting with our people). Tinkering with good works will not be sufficient.

Cliff has spent his adult life working to provide practical examples of more socially and environmentally balanced community.

CBEC is now one of Kaitaia’s larger employers providing a broad range of services to their community.
