Hi my name is Robert Nordstrom and I am the CEO for Rubicon. I have been in this role since May 2016. Prior to joining Rubicon, I was a Police officer in the New Zealand Police for 32 years.
My family has lived in Te Tai Tokerau, predominantly in the Kaipara area since 1988.I am married (32 years). My wife (Maria) is a serving Police Officer and is the National Manager for Victims. I have three grown up children. (April 25, Simone 22 and Kalham 20) I also have a grandson aged 15 months (Manaaki)
I have a passion for working with youth, and I have a passion for working with young people in the sporting area.
My passion has for many years been Basketball and as a High School student I lead my school to two National Secondary school titles., I also went on the play for New Zealand in the under 19’s, under 21’s and the Tall Blacks. I also won two national men’s titles with the Wellington Exchequer Saints men’s team
My goal is to ensure that every young person has the opportunity to achieve their potential by completing mainstream education, and completing their high school years as positive role models for others to aspire to be.
Opportunity only knocks once, that opportunity has to be grasped with both hands and taken to the next level with inspirational, motivational and inspired leadership.
