Anne has always lived in Christchurch. She is married with two adult children and three grandchildren. The expansion and development of the CES organisation is reflected in Anne’s career.
After holding a number of Personal Assistant positions in various large companies she joined CES in 1992 as Company Secretary/Administration Manager and Personal Assistant (responsible for 5 staff). Only the following year she was promoted to her current role, managing the Board Services Division.
Anne’s is a busy role. The Board Services Division team consists of both fulltime and part-time secretaries who attend secondary, intermediate and primary school board meetings. The client base also includes Not for Profit organizations and the Community sector.
Outside her ‘formal’ career, Anne also extended her capabilities into administration work with Plunket, Kindergarten and school committees, when she was at home raising her children full-time. A busy person always has time!
Outside work Anne is keen on travel and playing bridge.
Lynley can legitimately claim to know her business back to front!
She’s been a mother of school aged children, has served on a school board of trustees and has worked extensively in finance, both outside and within the education sector.
The early part of Lynley’s career was spent in accounting positions both in NZ and in England. Prior to joining Multi Serve Lynley spent 10 years away from her profession while her children were young, although she served on their primary school Board of Trustees for six years.
Lynley is well known in the Auckland education community and has accumulated a wealth of knowledge relating to school finances. She has enjoyed the challenge of introducing CES to the Auckland market and its unique “not for profit” nature has been extremely well received by the Auckland schools.

Summer holidays away from home with the family are always enjoyable while good food, good wine and good company are year-round favourites!
