Meet Dave White, Bay of Plenty Regional Water Safety Strategy Manager for Sport Bay of Plenty
Sport Bay of Plenty CEO, Heidi Lichtwark and Dave White.
Sport Bay of Plenty appointed Dave White in September 2019 to implement the Bay of Plenty water safety strategy. Dave’s brief is to coordinate, facilitate and review the delivery of water safety programmes and initiatives according to the Strategy’s priority actions.
With an extensive background in swimming and over 16 years as a Surf Lifeguard at Piha Beach, Auckland, Dave is well placed to understand the importance and need for sound and coordinated drowning prevention initiatives, so people can recreate safely in, on and around the water.
As a qualified diver and water sports enthusiast who spends every chance he can in, on, or around the water, Dave has had first hand experience of water safety education, rescue and recreation. His passion for safe water recreation means he is dedicated to bringing down drownings in the Bay of Plenty and making a difference in the local community.
