Chief Executive - Anthony de Rose
Anthony joins Skylight after spending nearly two decades working in specialty mental health services in New Zealand and Australia. Originally from Sri Lanka, Anthony has had a career that has spanned manufacturing, telecommunications, dairy, brewing, logistics, social housing and health sectors.
Initially migrating to New Zealand to complete an MBA at Victoria University, Anthony and his family fell in love with Aotearoa’s stunning natural beauty and the family-friendly lifestyle, and the rest is history. While he spent the early part of his career in the commercial industry, Anthony is excited to be part of the not for profit and social well-being sectors. His passion lies in making a difference in people’s lives, especially for our tamariki, rangatahi and their whānau.
