CEO steps down after 18 years with sanctuary

CEO steps down after 18 years with sanctuary

Zealandia and Karori Sanctuary Trust Chief Executive, Nancy McIntosh-Ward, announced that she is stepping down at the end of the year.

“I am extremely honoured to have had the opportunity to contribute to such an inspirational and worthwhile cause, and enjoy every moment of it. I am proud of the achievements of the Trust, which have only been made possible because of the passion and commitment of staff, volunteers and members. After 10 years as the chief executive, it is an appropriate time for me to step down to pursue new challenges. I would like to thank my staff, trustees, the volunteers and other key stakeholders and funders for all their support.”

Kevin Brady, interim chairman of the Karori Sanctuary Trust, paid tribute to Nancy McIntosh-Ward.

“It was with regret I accepted Nancy’s resignation. Nancy advised her resignation to the acting chair and I early on, but she had been asked to delay her announcement until a suitable interim replacement had been secured.”

“As a founding trustee for 8 years and chief executive for the last 10 years, Nancy has played a major role in transforming Zealandia from a vision and a dream to an award winning ecological asset for the city with wide community support, and a place for learning and visitor enjoyment. Nancy has been and is an outstanding chief executive.

The board appreciates and thanks Nancy for her significant contribution. Zealandia is well placed to play a significant role in the City’s 2040 eco-city vision.
