Bryan Taylor joins Waitakere Properties Board

Bryan Taylor, former Chief Executive of Auckland City Council, has been appointed as a director of Waitakere Properties Ltd (WPL).

Waitakere Properties is Waitakere City Council's property development company and the appointment was made at the Council's 31 August meeting.

“Mr Taylor brings a thorough knowledge of governance and an excellent track record in senior management,” says Councillor Janet Clews, chair of the Council's Finance and Operational Committee.

“Waitakere City is developing momentum and the Council believes the time is right to push for greater development in the city. It has charged the Waitakere Properties Board with expanding its property portfolio and Mr Taylor has the right blend of skills to assist in ensuring this happens successfully," she says.

Mr Taylor agrees that a new surge in development is possible and says that the WPL board wants to drive things along.

Waitakere Properties has a number of commercial development projects underway including an A grade regional office park at Waitakere Central, alongside the new Civic Centre in Henderson and residential projects in the New Lynn town centre. In addition, the company manages the Henderson Valley Film Studios. These have been a major success since they first opened several years ago and became the base for Disney's "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe” which opens in cinemas this year.

WPL is now seeking $10 million in private investment is being sought to build a new international quality film studio at the complex.

Mr Taylor joins current directors Ross Jewell (chairman), Rob Noakes and Ann Magee on the WPL board.
