Sir Owen G Glenn – Trustee

"I’m a great believer in the importance of sport and what it teaches young people. I’ve played and followed hockey most of my life and I’m truly taken with the foresight and commitment of Hockey New Zealand. I’m thrilled to be able to help foster and develop junior hockey as these are our next Black Sticks. But grassroots sport delivers much more than just our next international stars. It keeps kids active in these technology-driven times, it teaches lifelong skills like working as a team and respecting others, and it unites communities regardless of their race, wealth or background. As founding patron of the Hockey Foundation, I want to provide more New Zealand children with the opportunity to enjoy hockey and all the benefits that it brings."

Sir Owen is a leading New Zealand businessman and philanthropist with a love of sport
