New Chief Executive for Housing New Zealand

Housing New Zealand Corporation Chairman, Dr Alan Jackson, today announced the appointment of Glen Sowry to be the organisation’s new chief executive.

“The Board is very pleased to appoint Glen Sowry to lead Housing New Zealand through its major transformation programme to deliver better and more effective social housing outcomes that meet the changing needs of New Zealanders. Our role is to ensure those most in need have access to the right property, in the right place and at the right time for as long as that need exists,” said Chairman Alan Jackson.

“During his 10 years at Air New Zealand, Glen has held a number of senior leadership roles across the spectrum of the airline and demonstrated strong commercial acumen.

“In his current role as General Manager Operations Glen has had full accountability for the domestic jet and short haul international operation at the heart of the airline’s operational efficiency and profitability. He has lead these areas of the business through major transformation while maintaining high standards of customer delivery.

Glen Sowry replaces Lesley McTurk who competes six years at the helm of Housing New Zealand.

“Lesley has lead the organisation through the period of working though the need for the transformation programme with our shareholder, and has ensured that it has commenced on a sound footing. The Board is very appreciative of Lesley’s contribution to the organisation, Alan Jackson said today.

Lesley McTurk concludes her term as Chief Executive in October and Glen Sowry will commence as CEO at Housing New Zealand in mid January. The Board will announce an internal interim CEO shortly.
