THE MICHAEL KING WRITERS' CENTRE TRUST
Grant has held various financial and commercial management roles mainly in the corporate sector including Regency Duty Free Stores, Carter Holt Harvey, ORIX and Fruitfed Supplies. He is a member of the New Zealand Institute of Chartered Accountants. Originally from South Canterbury, he moved to Auckland after completing a B.Com at Canterbury University. He comes to the Trust through his association with Opoutere, where Michael King lived.
The centre aims to promote all aspects of New Zealand's literature, including fiction and non-fiction, and to recognise Michael King's stature as a writer, historian, biographer and someone who helped New Zealand understand its cultural roots.
