FairWay directors to strengthen new direction

FairWay Resolution Limited (FairWay) shareholding Minister, Judith Collins, has announced the appointment of two new directors of the Crown-owned company. The directors are Mr Daniel Nakhle and Mr Mark Sandelin.

“FairWay is at a crucial stage of development seeking to broaden its business base for its conflict management services,” says Ms Collins.

“With this wider strategy in mind, the appointment of Mr Nakhle and Mr Sandelin will add significant value to FairWay’s competitive position.

“Mr Nakhle’s private sector directorship and entrepreneurial experience will be an asset to FairWay as it capitalises on new business opportunities.

“Mr Sandelin has extensive experience in dispute resolution having acted both as mediator and as counsel in mediations. His networks will be invaluable to FairWay’s development efforts in the mediation sector.”

A large part of FairWay’s current business is providing dispute resolution services for ACC. However it also works with the Telecommunications Dispute Resolution scheme, the Financial Dispute Resolution scheme and the Real Estate Agents Authority as well as providing conflict management advice to a number of public and private sector clients.

“Mr Nakhle and Mr Sandelin are a welcome addition to FairWay’s Board and its dedication to a more diverse client base and sustainable future for the company,” says Ms Collins.

The new directors will serve a three-year term joining Peter Blades (Chair), Anita Chan, John Spencer and Tupara Morrison as part of the FairWay Board of Directors.

Note to Editors:

• FairWay was previously known as Dispute Resolution Services Limited (DRSL). It was renamed in November this year to mark its broadened business focus on all aspects of the conflict management cycle including dispute prevention, analysis and education.
• FairWay (then DRSL) was separated out from ACC in 2011 and made a Crown-owned company to enhance its independence in decision-making from ACC.

Gordon Campbell: On Drone Strikes And Judith Collins‘ Last Stand

The news that a New Zealand citizen was killed last November in a US drone attack in Yemen brings the drones controversy closer to home.

To the US, drones are a legitimate response to the threat posed by the al Qaeda organisation and its franchisees... To the US, the drones carry the added advantage of not putting US troops at risk on the ground, and minimises the need for putting them in large numbers in bases in the countries concerned, always a politically sensitive point.

The counter-argument, well articulated by security analyst Paul Buchanan on RNZ this morning, is that this particular drone attack can be said to amount to an extra-judicial execution of a New Zealand citizen by one of our military allies, in circumstances where the person concerned posed no threat to New Zealand’s domestic security.
