Martin Thomas

General Manager

Life is great!  There is always something new to learn and to experience ...and, good people to meet.  Re-invention brings new life, and broad experience brings wisdom.  My own experiences have included teacher, warden, bursar (...what's that?), iwi education manager, strategic facilitation consultant, voluntary national roles, student capability manager, student accommodation manager, company director, board member, and others that I can't now recall.  Working with people who are passionate and genuine and wanting to do their best for everyone they deal with is hugely rewarding.  Life is both about the journey and creating meaningful outcomes for those who you work with.  The DNA of hatch reflects that.  Our direction begins with the end in mind.

Deborah Kay

Senior Property Manager

When asked what drives me, I think the best thing is seeing people spark when they discover they’ve achieved, as well as being able to help them make that achievement! I’ve worked with many personalities throughout my career, and they never fail to intrigue me. Everyone has a story behind their outward persona and that’s the story I love to hear. As well as an extensive background in property management, I am a qualified vet nurse (having studied at Wintec!). Driven by a strong social conscience and dedication to others, I have been a vet nurse volunteer in Vietnam and East Africa, as well as working with orphaned children and young girls in these regions for several years. As a Senior Property Manager at Hatch, I’m looking forward to being involved with a team that is driving the change in the student rental market.
