Street takes up creative new role in fabrics

Sat 2 Oct 2010 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Robert Street High profile Auckland scene personality Robert Street has parted company with the NZ AIDS Foundation to take up a position in the fabric industry. Street developed a high profile on the Auckland social scene when he bought the Surrender Dorothy bar from its founder, Peter Taylor. In January last year he signed on to the NZAF as Executive Assistant to Executive Director Rachael Le Mesurier, Director HIV Prevention and Communications Simon Harger-Forde and Director Positive Health Services Eamonn Smythe. I got a new job with a fabric house and it was too good to pass up," says Street. I really liked all the people and the NZAF so it was hard to leave." He says his new job is more creative and less tied to spreadsheets than his NZAF role. "While everyone at the NZAF is very sad to see Robert go," Says NZAF boss Rachael Le Mesurier, "we are thrilled for him that he has this opportunity. We miss him very much and wish him all the best."
