Charlotte Hansen

Head of People and Operations

Meet Charlotte - Our Head of People and Operations

You might not see much of Charlotte on a day to day basis, but you can be sure she’s always working her managerial magic behind the scenes. 

With the benefit of a BA/BCom majoring in Management and French from the University of Auckland, Charlotte is master of all things HR and people-related, and skilfully handles the operational tasks that contribute to the smooth running of Developers Institute and our partner company Parasol.

Before joining Developers Institute

Charlotte’s career in HR and Operations has seen her gain valuable experience in both the private and public sectors. Before joining Developers Institute she worked for Northland Veterinary Group and regional economic development agency Northland Inc, and prior to moving north she worked for successful apparel company Icebreaker in Auckland.

There's more to Charlotte than managing people

Family and friends - human and canine - feature heavily in Charlotte’s life. She loves taking her dogs on adventures, while trying to keep up with her very active toddler. Just as well she has a special knack for finding the best place to buy a scoop of ice cream - the perfect way to slow everyone down for a minute or two.

Multicultural Charlotte spent time living in France and speaks fluent French, and she also has 13 years of Highland Dancing practice under her belt, so there’s plenty to chat about if you do catch her out and about. Catching up to her might be the bigger challenge though!
