Mt Cook Alpine Salmon appoints Sir Bill English to board

July 10 2018


Mt Cook Alpine Salmon has announced the appointment of Sir Bill English to its board of directors, effective August 1 2018.

Board Chairman, the Rt. Hon Jim Bolger says Bill’s profile is obviously well known throughout New Zealand.

“His recent retirement from politics gives him the opportunity to apply his talents and unquestionable belief in New Zealand, helping a fast-growing company like ours realise its potential for the benefit of shareholders and NZ Inc,” he says.

Mr English is delighted to be joining the board of Mount Cook Alpine Salmon.

“I am looking forward to joining a southern company producing a world-class product that is doing extremely well in high-value export markets, and I hope to contribute to its ongoing success,” he says.

Mr Bolger says the continued success of Mt Cook Alpine Salmon depends as much on the performance of the organisation as it does on the product.

“I am confident that Bill’s strong relationships within New Zealand, along with his developed international experience, will prove invaluable as we continue to expand our business,” he says.

“I very much look forward to his contribution.”
