Vector Welcomes Future Director

Vector Welcomes Future Director

Vector, New Zealand’s largest owner of electricity and gas infrastructure assets, today announced that Tony Arthur has joined the Board as a “Future Director”.

The “Future Directors” initiative was founded by Vector Chairman, Michael Stiassny, Sir Stephen Tindall, and Des Hunt. The initiative aims to give young talented people the opportunity to observe and participate on a company board for a year while giving the company exposure to this talent and the benefits a young mind can bring to the boardroom.

“Future Directors” participate as a board member in all aspects but have no voting rights and will not form part of the quorum of a board meeting.

Tony Arthur is currently Bank of New Zealand’s (BNZ) head of retail network.  He is a senior executive leader and has led businesses across a number different industries and markets both regulated and unregulated.

“I am pleased to welcome Tony to Vector’s Board as a Future Director and look forward to the contribution he will make,” said Vector Chairman Michael Stiassny.
