Director of Education - North America, Education New Zealand
Amy Rutherford is passionate about international education. She’s been an international student – twice! First in the US as an exchange student during her bachelor’s degree and again in 2014 as a Chinese language student in Beijing. She’s the daughter of an English mother who travelled to New Zealand in the mid-1970s on a teacher exchange – international education is in the blood.
Based in Los Angeles for Education New Zealand, she is responsible for providing strategic advice and intelligence to further the development of the North American markets for New Zealand. Her day-to-day work involves education diplomacy and liaison with US universities and other international education stakeholders to progress New Zealand government objectives.
