Minister for State Owned Enterprises, Hon Tony Ryall, has announced two appointments to the Board of Solid Energy New Zealand Ltd.

Pip Dunphy has been appointed Chair and David Reece has been appointed a director of Solid Energy.

“In Pip Dunphy, we gain another Chair of high calibre, as Solid Energy continues to work its way through very difficult trading conditions,” Mr Ryall says.

Mr Ryall has also announced the appointment of Brisbane-based mining and safety expert, David Reece, as a director of Solid Energy.

“Maintaining the Company’s operational mining expertise at governance level, and its focus on related Health and Safety issues remains critical, says Mr Ryall.

“I would like to thank Mr Ford for his effective leadership of Solid Energy in a very challenging environment,” Mr Ryall says.

Background

Pip Dunphy is an Auckland-based company director, with a financial services and funds management background, and specific focus on capital markets, investment management, banking and risk management.

David Reece is based in Brisbane, and has more than 35 years’ experience in the mining industry, with a particular focus in recent years on safety, training, audit and risk management.
