Labour Minister Margaret Wilson and Women’s Affairs Minister Ruth Dyson today announced a new Public Sector appointment to the Board of the Equal Employment Opportunities Trust.

Peter Hughes, Chief Executive of the Ministry of Social Development has been appointed for a three-year term. Peter Hughes will replace Anne Carter, Acting Chief Executive of the Ministry of Women's Affairs, who has chosen not to seek reappointment.

The appointment of Peter Hughes will bring the composition of the EEO Trust Board to three males and four females, and bring the number of public sector positions on the EEO Trust Board to four.

"Peter Hughes has considerable public sector experience, including senior management positions in the Ministry of Health, the Health Funding Authority and the Department of Internal Affairs.
