Anahera Rawiri (Ngāti Whātua) is a Principal and cultural strategist who has worked extensively with iwi and corporate sectors. With over 12 years’ experience in strategic design and implementation, stakeholder management and business development, her expertise is underscored by a strong focus on achieving outcomes that have significant social and commercial impact. 

At Jasmax, Anahera leads engagement processes with Mana Whenua and works with project teams to ensure a thorough understanding of cultural objectives.

As the Principal and Founder of ABH Limited, a consultancy spearheading private and public sector projects in property, health, iwi, and Māori engagement, Anahera delivers advice through an Indigenous lens. She also currently sits on the Waitematā Local Board, advocating for protecting and restoring local natural resources and supporting business and urban development.

Her extensive knowledge of property development is in part due to her role leading the housing portfolio at Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Whai Rawa, in which she led iwi and stakeholder engagement on various projects. Whilst in this role, Anahera was appointed by PCNZ to govern the Auckland Executive Committee to represent Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei Whai Rawa, acting as a key spokesperson and managing all stakeholder relations, including central and local government, consultants, community and iwi.

A member of Waka Māia, Anahera advocates for the proficiency of te reo Māori, supports emerging Māori designers in the development of their careers and guides cultural capability across the practice.
