Meet the Senior Management Team

Meg de Ronde, Acting Executive Director

Meg has been with Amnesty International since 2015. She oversees our campaigning, research, advocacy, youth, media and activism work.

Meg has an undergraduate degree in politics and english and a first class Master of Arts in Politics. She has spent time researching and lecturing in media and comparative politics and has many years experience in activism and campaigning from grassroots to leadership positions.

Ray Headifen, Finance Director

Ray joined Amnesty International New Zealand in February 2016 and is enthusiastic about being part of a team contributing to Amnesty International’s life changing work.

The majority of Ray’s professional career was with PwC (chartered accountants), most latterly as part of the senior management team of PwC Indonesia. His role required working with a variety of organisations and personnel across varied cultures and jurisdictions.

Ray was involved in a number of charitable projects during his time in Indonesia. One he is particularly proud of is assisting his wife setting a support network for families with visually impaired children.

One of his favourites quotes is: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are” (Theodore Roosevelt)

Zebedee Stone, Fundraising & Marketing Director

Zebedee (Zeb for short) returned to Amnesty International in 2019 having started his fundraising career with the organisation over a decade earlier. He oversees our fundraising, supporter engagment, and marketing activities.

During his career Zeb has led fundraising teams with local and international organisations and is passionate about engaging supporters with the change they make possible. Zeb has undergraduate degrees in politics and psychology and has recently been completing a Masters of Business Administration at the University of Auckland.

Alongside work and study, Zeb is an avid runner who competes in marathon and ultra-marathon distances. You'll likely see him out and about running around Auckland far too often!
