Ron VinkRon - Managing Director

Founding Director

About five years ago Ron retired, after a rewarding career in the property and building industry. As a way to express his gratitude for the many blessings in his life he set up the 4 A Better City Trust to see the vulnerable people in the Upper Hutt community enjoy greater mental, spiritual, social, and economic wellbeing and he is committing the rest of his life to that cause. With the help of his amazing team and the wonderful volunteers who work alongside him, he is thoughtfully rolling out projects that will bit by bit lead to the fulfilment of his dream.  

Apart from this work he loves spending time with his wonderful wife of 39 years, his three daughters and their families, his friends, and his church.


Martin EdwardsMartin - Technician

Project Manager

Martin joined the 4ABC team three years ago and although he manages two projects, his greatest contribution to the work is his willingness to do whatever needs doing, whenever it needs to be done. His passion to love people and make them feel better about themselves and life in general drives this commitment to serve.

He brings a host of talents to his work including photography, IT, humour, and every now and then we even get to see him strut his stuff as “Magic Martin”.

But without a doubt, highest on his list of priorities is spending time with his two gorgeous granddaughters, and watching the “Beautiful Game”... the rest of his family and friends rank a distant second... not really!
