Airport continues to develop next generation of talent

Auckland Airport continues to develop New Zealand’s next generation of governance talent


Auckland Airport’s Board announced today that it has selected Shelley Cave to participate in the Future Director Programme.

Ms Cave is a consultant at Simpson Grierson, a board member of the Financial Markets Authority and also was recently appointed to the Government Superannuation Fund Authority. She has held previous roles on the Financial Markets Authority Establishment Board and the Securities Commission, and her legal career has spanned 22 years as a mergers and acquisitions and capital markets specialist.

The Future Director Programme seeks to identify talented young executives with strong potential to succeed in a governance role, and provide them with opportunities to observe and participate in Boardroom discussions. While the aspiring directors participate in real discussions, they do not have a role in Board decision making, and Auckland Airport has protocols in place that prevent future director participants becoming "deemed directors".

Auckland Airport’s Chair, Sir Henry van der Heyden, says, “We strongly believe in the value of the Future Director Programme and were proud to appoint New Zealand’s inaugural participant in the Programme last year. Continuing our participation in the Programme is important. It helps promote diversity of leadership and the development of governance talent and the Board looks forward to Shelley joining our discussions.”

Ms Cave says, “I am delighted to have been selected by the Board and I look forward to developing my governance skills at Auckland Airport over the next 12 months.”
