He is an experienced chartered accountant and an independent financial consultant.

Both new members have been appointed for three-year terms until 30 June 2009.

Joe Pope (Wellington) has been on the NZSO Board for ten years. His reappointment for one year will help ensure continuation of the Board's marketing and successful financial focus.

The following have been reappointed for two-year terms until 31 July 2008.

Bill Falconer (Karapiro) is a commercial lawyer and company director with considerable governance, commercial and legal experience. He has held numerous community positions and is a former director of Opera New Zealand.

"I am very pleased to welcome two new members onto the NZSO Board", said Judith Tizard. "Both bring a range of skills and experience which will add to the already strong artistic and business capacity on the Board. Mark Barrow brings a useful new perspective to the Board. Roger Taylor's long-time commitment to the performing arts aligned with his financial skills will also add value."
