Marcus Waters – Expedition Leader
Antarctic Heritage Trust General Manager Commercial and Partnerships
Marcus joined the Trust in August last year and was previously General Manager of People, Culture and Communication at Southland and Otago’s Electricity Management Company. He has spent over 20 years in Human Resource Management and People Development. Prior to working in the corporate world, he was an outdoor instructor and assessor at the Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoor Pursuit Centre. Marcus is also an explorer, and with his adventure team in the 2000s, completed a number of world first expeditions. He was the first person to complete an extended sea kayak journey in Antarctica, paddling over 900km from the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, past the Antarctic Circle to the base. He is looking forward to sharing the amazing Antarctic environment with the next generation of explorers.
