New appointments to Tertiary Education Commission Board

Tertiary Education Minister Steven Joyce has appointed Dr Judith Johnston as a Commissioner of the Tertiary Education Commission.

Dr Johnston, who has been appointed for a period of three years, will replace Deidre Dale whose term expired on 31 August 2010.

“Judith is a highly capable individual who has had extensive governance experience,” Minister Joyce said.

“She has been a partner at Unisys Corporation and is former Chief Information Officer at the Ministry of Justice. Judith has also held roles as a Teaching Fellow and Lecturer at the University of Auckland and University of Waikato, and was Visiting Professor of Public Policy at Princeton University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.”

“Robin and Pauline have both made a strong contribution to the TEC board since their initial appointments and I look forward to working with them further,” the Minister said.
