René Heremana Malmezac

Born and raised in the Pacific Islands, Heremana Malmezac spent 15 years building his business group, as well as developing and managing the family group, in French Polynesia, New Caledonia and the Pacific Rim before moving to New Zealand with his wife Lola and his children Kulani and Taaroa, then aged 5 and 3 years old.

Swapping the sunny beaches of New Caledonia for the alpine slopes of Queenstown in New Zealand may seem like an unlikely move, but with his love of outdoor sports and adventures, Queenstown was a natural fit.

Heremana has turned this passion into purpose and is committed to making these sporting activities that were such a fundamental part of his formative years available to the young people of New Caledonia, as a positive way to unify and communicate across boundaries.

Devotees of mountain biking and hiking, Heremana and his family generously agreed to build a bike park on some of their lands in Ouenghi, New Caledonia. This passion project was realised after four years of work with Olivier and Helene Buffet, volunteers and a group of friends from New Zealand who travelled every year to assist and share their technical knowledge.

He created the sailing team Guilty Pleasures with Renaud Geradin and contributed financially to the purchase of the boat, training programs and equipment. The team is also an incubator, with its young pupils winning the New Caledonia Championship seven times and coming 2nd in the World Championship in Sydney in 2017.
