New business account manager
Pete Hodkinson joined Qualworx in June 2021. He has a Diploma in Sport and Fitness Education from Unitec where he graduated top of his class. Making a few non-linear shifts he forged a background in local, national and international student association leadership, governance, sales, music and language education. The skills that tied it altogether? Connecting the unconnected; both ideas and people. He’s ready to put his toolkit to use, developing and growing our organisation alongside the team.
Pete is driven by a passion for adventure and growth. In 2017 he quit his office job, sold everything and bought a one-way ticket to Ireland to pursue music and explore. He made his way around Europe for three years, independently releasing his music on Spotify and gigging everywhere he could. He settled for a time in Germany where he became fluent in the language and forged his second home (Bochum), before returning home to New Zealand in 2020. Pete is an actively competitive Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner and coach and says his ”third home” is arguably in the gym.
Pete is beyond excited to be a part of the team, especially given it’s focus on biculturalism, and is ready to tackle language number 3, te reo Māori.
