Electoral College

New Board Member for Infrastructure Auckand

The Infrastructure Auckland Electoral College has appointed Mr Richard Waddel to the Board of Infrastructure Auckland. The appointment is effective 1 July 2002.

Mr Waddel will be filling the position left by Hugh Fletcher who chose not to seek re-appointment after serving on the Board since its inception in October 1998.

Sir Barry Curtis, Chairman of the Infrastructure Auckland Electoral College, said, “The appointment of Richard Waddel brings additional financial and business skills to complement the already diverse skill set on the Board”. He has previously been Managing Partner and Chief Executive of Ernst and Young and Chair of the Auckland District Health Board and is currently Chair of Pharmac.

The Electoral College also re-appointed John Robertson as a member for a further three years and as Chairman of the Board for a further 12 months. Sir Barry says he has provided sound leadership and has unanimous support within the current Board.

In marking the departure of Hugh Fletcher, Sir Barry said thanked him for the valuable service provided during the critically important formative years of Infrastructure Auckland.

The 5 remaining members of the Board are Richard Didsbury, Dr Jocelyn Jesson, Dr Tony Lanigan, John Maasland and Gary Taylor, who have varying terms of office in line with a legislative requirement for a rotating system of appointments.

Sir Barry said, “Infrastructure Auckland continues to perform a very important role in helping to fund transport and major stormwater infrastructure within urban and rural Auckland. The continued wise stewardship of the resources available to Infrastructure Auckland will ensure the progressive implementation of the Auckland Regional Land Transport Strategy and the Passenger Transport Action Plan”.
