Lyndon Bray has had a rich and varied professional career, which has seen him traverse both the corporate and sporting worlds over the last 30 years. More recently, in March of 2021, Lyndon was appointed as Chief Executive Officer of the Tasman Rugby Union and is therefore now based in sunny Nelson, NZ.
While he is probably better known for his sporting success, both as a rugby referee and coach, Lyndon spent time as Telecom New Zealand’s Induction Training Manager, and the Bank of New Zealand where he was the National Training Manager for the People and Culture Department. During this time, he became accredited as an Extended DISC Profile Behavioral Specialist (2001) and received his qualification in Business Management at the Australian Institute of Management (1996).
Lyndon is also a fully accredited facilitator and coach in the Team Management Services products, including the globally recognised "TMS leadership behaviour 360 degree feedback profile" and the "TMS team management profile".
He has run his own business (Coach for Success) in Wellington and after his refereeing career moved into sports management, leading the Super Rugby Referee Team at SANZAAR for ten years.
As a head coach Lyndon brings to the leadership program a strong “why” culture, the ability to help people ‘peel back their own onion' and find their personal why. As a strong advocate for coaching and personal growth, Lyndon will challenge people to open up their own world of possibilities.
Lyndon is passionate about art and music (he plays the piano), an avid golfer, and loves a conversation over good food and wine!
