Hannah Gillespie

Team Assistant

Hannah is the glue that holds our team together. She seamlessly connects our staff, customers and senior team together to get the job done. She is thoughtful and artful in managing our crew behind the scenes. She honed her skills during a stunning professional career as an Executive Assistant at Icebreaker, TVNZ and BNZ. We are delighted to have her holding down the fort at Forbury. 

Hannah enjoys the variety of her role. She likes that no two days are the same, and she loves finding solutions to challenges. She balances administration with customer and team support. Our team works closely with Hannah to ensure we are efficient with our time and resources and that we deliver to a high level every day. In addition, Hannah has one special skill that we all really appreciate: she loves baking and decorating specialty cakes.

Hannah’s cakes are works of art. They are not only beautiful to look at; they are magically delicious. Hannah is Head of the Cake Department and she makes all the Forbury celebration cakes. Hannah is an integral part of our team and our morning teas. We love your work, Hannah.
