The former Head of Stand Up To Cancer (one of Cancer Research UK’s highest profile campaigns) brings 15 years’ experience in both the private and charity sectors to Movember. Under her leadership, Stand Up To Cancer experienced one of its most successful years to date in 2016, while the 2017 campaign grew both off and on air through in-show programming for TV shows including The Great British Bake Off, Hunted and Gogglebox. Rachel has also worked on brands including Budweiser, Cadbury and John Frieda.

Outside the office, Rachel loves dancing, singing (badly) and is a big Manchester United fan.

 

Brendan Maher

Global Director, Mental Health & Suicide Prevention.

Brendan is responsible for overseeing Movember’s global suite of mental health and suicide prevention programs. His key focus is on ensuring the foundation’s work in prevention and early intervention is able to reach more men in priority populations - including fathers, young men, indigenous men and men experiencing social isolation. As a current board member and former CEO of R U OK?, Brendan brings more than 13 years’ experience in the mental health and suicide prevention sector to the Movember Foundation. Prior to joining R U OK? Maher was a former General Manager of Lifeline, a non-profit organisation providing free, 24-hour Telephone Crisis Support service in Australia.

He values time with family and friends, hiking and exploring new places. After kidding himself for a season or two too long, he (sadly) recently hung up his Rugby Union boots.


Movember Ambassadors

 

Jonny Hurn

Auckland

Jonny was born here but traded Wellingtons wind for Sydney's sand. Thankfully he got sick of walking on the beach, swapped his boardies for body armour, and can now be found walking the beat here in Auckland as a New Zealand Police Officer.

Between the funny stories, thermonuclear pies and flashing lights, like all first responders Jonny is exposed to the darkest moments in many peoples lives. These experiences take a toll and galvanised his passion for change. Jonny grows a Mo to see better mental health outcomes for Men, having seen the impact of this crisis both at home and at work. He is especially passionate about targeted strategies for his mates in emergency services, who carry a heavy load for all of us.

After work it's time at home with family before escaping civilization to hit the road on two wheels. You might just see him out there, taking the long way around.

 

Tyson Hullena

Wellington

 

Tyson is a survivor of testicular cancer and an advocate for mental health. Tyson was sporting a moustache when first diagnosed with testicular cancer during November in 2013. Seldom clean-shaven, every Movember is a fresh(faced) reminder of the journey to overcome that diagnosis. He is a keen public speaker and is keen to have open conversations about mental health to stop men dying too young.

Hailing from the mighty Wairarapa, Tyson enjoys spending time near the ocean swimming, diving and surfing. You may also find him out running, in the gym or spending time with friends and whānau. Tyson’s mo-style is the regent, inspired by New Zealand’s own Billy T James.

 

Angus Cameron

Christchurch

 

Has a huge passion for Movember, particularly men's mental health, as he has had close mates go through some tough times and also lost his 15 year old cousin to suicide. Getting out and continuing to raise awareness during the month of Movember is something he looks forward to each year and of course it means the resurgence of his glorious mo.

Angus is from Christchurch and an accountant by trade. During the winter he loves to get out on the footy field and chase the oval ball around on one of the best grounds in NZ - Little River. In the summer, he prefers to be parked up on the beach soaking in the sun or parked up on an embankment with a beer watching some cricket.

 

Tori Wheelans

Invercargill

Tori has been a Mo Sista with Movember since 2018 after loosing her Dad to suicide. She has come to Movember with the intent to bring awareness to Men’s Health, start conversations between all the special men in her life and change the stigma around the stereotypes of toxic masculinity.

Tori is a Primary School Teacher in Invercargill and in her spare time you’ll either find her in the kitchen whipping up some baking or outdoors running or walking with friends and family.

 

Dan Sharples

Christchurch

 

Having gone through his own testicular cancer diagnosis, Dan knows the importance of Movember to someone going through a men’s health issue. This year will be his third campaign with Movember and he can’t wait to get out and spread the men’s health message.

Outside of work you won’t find him too far from a cricket ground, on the golf course or enjoying the sun at the beach.
