Caroline McGlynn Tran

EA to CIO

Ministry of Social Development

I come late to the Public Sector having spent a good few years working for billionaire property developers in Asia, having gone on a not-so-traditional OE. What an experience those years were for the girl from the Hutt via Catholic boarding school! With the Public Service I have found my “why”. I am able to use my extensive experience in C-Suite support, as well as entrepreneurial experience in handling all aspects of office management. I wear many hats – my Executive’s advisor, personal manager, travel and events planner, EA influencer, staff liaison, client relationship builder and public relations coordinator. I thrive in a fast paced environment and enjoy every minute of IT.
