Kia ora e te iwi,
This week marks my third anniversary as GM for Rangitāne. What a time it’s been! After a wonderful three years, yesterday I announced my intention to finish up at the end of the month.
For me, serving our members has always been the most enjoyable part of the role. Our iwi is in great financial shape, we have a huge profile and a strong programme for social services, and so I feel this is the right time to move on. I am proud of an extremely effective team that will continue to deliver to our members in an increasingly complex environment.
The timing allows for Trustees to carefully organise my succession, who will have my full support. I will be leaving a strong, growing organisation that is made up of great people. We are well resourced to take Rangitāne to new levels.
In the meantime, I would like to take the opportunity to say a sincere ngā mihi to Rangitāne whānau. The Rūnanga belongs to you and I have been privileged to be a small part of it.
Mā te wā
Kia ora e te iwi,
On behalf of the Trust Board, we wish to acknowledge the considerable contribution that Nick has made since he joined us three years ago.
Nick joined us during a time of significant change and has provided strong and stable leadership that has enabled us to progress further as an organisation. During Nick’s time, he has overseen significant projects and events, including the construction of the Tauihu, design and build of 14 Horton Street, a restructure of our investments and managed funds, the Rangitāne contribution to Tuia 250, the Rangitāne involvement in the Ōpaoa Bridge Pou, redevelopment works at Tuamātene and embedding our strategic plan – just to name a few of his many achievements.
We are working with Nick and his team to develop a transition plan, and hope to make announcements on our next steps in due course.
For now, on behalf of Rangitāne, we thank Nick for his contribution and the important part that he has played in our journey.
