Pacific Business Trust Media Release

Chief Executive Appointment

A new Chief Executive has been appointed to head the Pacific Business Trust in Auckland.

Paul Muller will take up his position on 1 July 2005. Pacific Business Trust Chair, Pauline Winter, says the appointment is welcome news for the Trust.

"The board is delighted to appoint a man of Paul's calibre," says Ms Winter. "Paul's legal and organisational background will strengthen the continuing development and growth of the organisation".

Paul Muller replaces former Chief Executive, Jim Mather, who departed in February to head Maori Television.

Ms Winter makes a special acknowledgement of PBT's Business Development Manager, Inoke Vala, who has held the position of Acting Chief Executive for the past three months.

"During this time he kept an excellent watch on the operational and management running of the organisation. His commitment and support is invaluable and the board and I appreciate the large contribution he has made."

The Pacific Business Trust was established in 1985 as a charitable trust to increase business ownership and economic participation amongst Pacific peoples in New Zealand.

Today the Trust is a national organisation with offices in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. It contracts on an annual basis with the Ministry of Pacific Island Affairs and is governed by ministerial appointed trustees.
