Alastair Scott, 48, is owner and director of Wairarapa’s Matahiwi Estate winery. He is also Chairman of Henergy Cage Free Eggs, a director of Transpower, Councillor of Massey University, and Trustee of the Wairarapa Region Irrigation Trust and NZ Scout Youth Foundation.
His successful business career sits alongside a strong track record of community involvement as a founding Trustee of ‘Kiwi Can’ Charitable Trust Wellington, Deputy Chair of the Wairarapa Chamber of Commerce, and a Member of the Wairarapa Development Group.
Mr Scott is a father of three. He lives between residences in Masterton and Wellington with partner RobynNoble-Campbell and their blended family.
A successful business career and a strong track record of community involvement are far better credentials for an aspiring MP than most candidates standing for parties, and many sitting MPs, on the left.
