Ngapuhi appoints new manager for commercial company

Paul Knight has been appointed Company Manager of Ngapuhi Asset Holding Company Limited (NAHC) after a nationwide search.

Mr Knight was previously a General Manager and part owner in the Farro Fresh Foods operation, and prior to that was Group Company Secretary at Turners and Growers.

Paul has a background in business, starting with PWC in the Taxation and Legal Services division. He is a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand and has a Bachelor of Management Studies.

Said the Chairman of NAHC, Leigh Auton: “We are delighted with this appointment as Paul brings a breadth of experience gained in a privately held business, a listed company and a leading professional services provider.

“Paul has a proven track record, understands regional New Zealand and brings a strong network of influential relationships with him to the North. Also, he has the foresight to spot a rare opportunity to build another successful company in the growing Iwi economy.

“The board was looking for particular expertise, including strong financial management, a skill of enormous importance to the future wellbeing of Ngapuhi."

NAHC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Te Runanga-a-Iwi-o Ngapuhi, the representative Iwi authority for the 125,600 strong tribe, New Zealand’s largest.

NAHC manages all Ngapuhi collectively-owned assets, for the benefit of Ngapuhi everywhere.
