In memory of Professor Richie Poulton

Richie Poulton is remembered as a treasured friend and inspirational leader at the Wise Group, where he was a trustee on the Wise Trust board from 2015 and member of the Te Pou board since 2007.

Richie brought a brilliant focus on using evidence, research and data to his governance work, alongside a lifelong dedication to caring for people. He was a generous mentor to many people throughout the group, willingly sharing his knowledge and connections.

Richie was director of the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Research Unit, leading the world-renowned Dunedin longitudinal study since 2000. His immense contribution to one of the most detailed studies of human health and development ever undertaken had a significant impact in science, society and policy making on a national and international scale.

We are tremendously grateful for Richie’s tireless dedication and incredible contribution to the Wise Group, and the world we live in. He will be missed and remembered always.
