Contact Kiri Allan

Kiri is a commercial lawyer and business consultant based in Whakatane and working all throughout the East Coast electorate. She has a focus on the primary industries, as she believes enhancing the primary sector in the East Coast region is vital to regional development. Regional development creates jobs, and Kiri’s focus is on decent jobs, homes, and ensuring that the East Coast is a place where families can live and thrive.

The East Coast is one of the most beautiful regions in the country, with its expansive coastlines, vast country land, and great community. However, many people within the East Coast region have witnessed a growing chasm between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’ – in particular, the rise in numbers of working families that are barely making ends meet.

Kiri is committed to the East Coast region having been raised in Paengaroa, marrying into the Coates family from Kawerau and Te Teko, and working within the business sector throughout the broader East Coast region. She has 16 years advocacy experience both domestically and internationally, is a director on a company in the horticulture sector, is an executive member on a national Kiwifruit growers association, a board member of 350.org (a climate change organization focused on divestments) and manages a multi-million dollar primary sector portfolio throughout the East Coast region.
Kiri believes the East Coast region has been neglected for too long and believes our region deserves more.
