Ranjna Patel Announced as New Zealand Business Hall of Fame Laureate

We are thrilled to congratulate our member Ranjna Patel ONZSM QSM for her upcoming induction into the New Zealand Business Hall of Fame.

Ranjna is a visionary entrepreneur and philanthropist who has been championing social equity and communal health in Aotearoa New Zealand since 1977. As co-founder of Tāmaki Health, New Zealand’s largest private primary healthcare network, and founder of Ghandi Nivas, an initiative that provides early prevention services for people at risk of committing family harm, Ranjna’s legacy as a leader reflects her steadfast commitment to healthcare equity and community wellbeing.

In addition to her unwavering dedication to uplifting community and health outcomes, Ranjna is an established leader amongst the Indian community of South Auckland. A Trustee for the Swaminarayan Temple, which provides community and social services, Ranjna was also the first woman President of the Manukau Indian Association.

Ranjna’s commitment to fostering community equity and well-being has been previously recognised with prestigious honours, including the Queen’s Service Medal (QSM) and the Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM). She joins the New Zealand Business Hall of Fame alongside influential 2024 Laureates including Sir Ian Taylor, Tod Heller, Mark Dunajtschik, Rod Duke, Diane Foreman, and Sir Glen Owenn.

The New Zealand Business Hall of Fame, expertly curated by Young Enterprise, represents the highest level of national recognition given to individuals who have made substantial and enduring contributions to business and communities in Aotearoa. The 2024 Laureates will be officially inducted on the 11th of September.

We are deeply proud to have such an exceptional mana wāhine leader in our midst and look forward to the continued positive impact of her extraordinary work.
