Taupo Office

Errol and Tracy Brain – General Managers

My wife Tracy and I joined the TDDA TEAM in December 2013 after 3 years living in Portugal where I was the National Head coach of their Rugby Team. Before then I coached and played Professional rugby in New Zealand France and Japan.

I believe my background in professional sport has provided me with the skills compassion and professionalism to make a real difference and I look forward to the challenge. My wife Tracy and I are very excited about our involvement in this company and are very motivated to make a positive change.

Kevin McFarlane – Operations Manager

I joined TDDA in 2008 after 15 years with the NZ Police. I had a varied and interesting time in the police and gained first-hand knowledge of the massive harm that drugs & alcohol can impose in our society. The transition to TDDA has allowed me to make positive changes to people in the Bay of Plenty with drug & alcohol issues as well as making our workplaces safer for everybody.

I enjoy working with local businesses in providing a first class service together with the rest of our team. TDDA have been the pioneers in many ways in this industry and it has been rewarding to be a part of it from the early days to where is stands today.

I play and coach soccer in my spare time and have two young children and a 12 year old son. The Bay of Plenty Steamers are now my adopted Rugby Team (I’m from Taniwha country – Whangarei) and I enjoy raising a family and living in Tauranga.
