The Whillans Team

Trish Whillans

Director and General Manager

Trish is the other half of the name behind the Whillans brand. Trish and partner Bruce conceived the idea of Whillans Realty over a decade ago. Their combined skill and experience launched the company onto solid ground.

Before she and Bruce started Whillans, Trish spent 25 years in media and marketing. She has worked in broadcast sales at TVNZ, as a director in advertising agencies, and in management for a national magazine company. Trish went on to establish her own business in Auckland, The O’Connell Room, an exclusive and top-end venue for business meetings and presentations.

As General Manager at Whillans, Trish is responsible for administration and day-to-day operation of the business. She also uses her extensive skills in planning, sales and media to oversee the company’s advertising, marketing and public relations strategy.
