Paul Reid was the CEO of MetService from February 2007 until January 2011.
I am not a Meteorologist but I do have an Honours Degree in Science from Massey University. I joined MetService in February 2007 and before this I have worked for Air New Zealand, Carter Holt Harvey & Ernst & Young. I spent the early part of my life in Pirinoa-South Wairarapa as my parents were farmers. I now live in Wellington with my 3 children Anastasia, Katia and Ivan so most of my spare time is taken up chasing after the kids.
