About Te Pio

Te Pio joined Boffa Miskell in 2002 to work on the 50 Year Western Bay of Plenty Sub-regional Growth Strategy more commonly called “SmartGrowth” and became a permanent team member in 2003.

Born and raised in Tauranga Moana, Te Pio has strong Iwi affiliations to Ngāti Ranginui and Ngāti Maniapoto through his mother and Ngāpuhi on his father’s side. His skills and experience have been gained by working on whanau and hapu development projects specialising in Māori community housing (papakāinga) and hapū management plans.
