HRINZ a new interim Chief Executive

HRINZ is pleased to announce a new interim Chief Executive.

Baubre Murray joined the HRINZ Board of Directors after a career in chartered accountancy and governance. Her executive expertise, along with governance and membership experience with Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) will be invaluable to HRINZ.

Murray will be interim Chief Executive until a permanent person is recruited in the next few months.

"I'm excited about the opportunity to work in an operational role at HRINZ. We have a number of goals that we want to achieve for members in the next few months and a busy schedule of events, including Summit 2018 and our HRINZ conference in Auckland this October" says Murray.

Further changes in the HRINZ national office include Matt MacKenzie moving to a new role in Digital Marketing at Cigna Insurance, while Louise Down joins the organisation as the new Communications and Sponsorship Manager.
