Two new directors have been elected to the CentrePort Board at the 25 November Annual General Meeting.

Chairman Lachie Johnstone welcomes Warwick Tauwhare-George and Chris Day to the Board.

“Warwick brings a wealth of commercial acumen and Māori business experience, involved in the food and fibre, property and hospitality industries including as a director on Ngai Tahu Farming Limited.

“And we welcome Chris’s extensive expertise in the finance, technology and energy sectors.   His range of skills and experience along with those of Warwick will be real assets to the Board,” Mr Johnstone said.

Mr Tauwhare-George and Mr Day replace departing directors John Monaghan and Kerrie-Lee Magill.

Mr Johnstone thanked the retiring directors for their contribution.

“Kerrie Lee leaves after nearly two-and-a-half years and her wide range of commercial experience has benefited to the Board.

“John Monaghan departs having served 11 years.  We thank John for his wise counsel and contribution over a period that has marked major changes and challenges for the business.  These have included the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake and latterly the global pandemic,” said Mr Johnstone.
