Hon Nanaia Mahuta

Te Minita Whanaketanga Māori

Minister for Māori Development

New Māori Trustee announced

Māori Development Minister Hon Nanaia Mahuta announced the appointment of Dr Charlotte Marewa Severne (Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Ngāi Tūhoe) as the new Māori Trustee today.

Dr Severne’s appointment is for a three year term and replaces Mr Jamie Tuuta.

“I am proud to announce that our next Māori Trustee will inject a vision of aspiration and opportunity to support Māori land owners. Dr Charlotte Severne will be the first woman to lead Te Tumu Paeroa (the Māori Trustee),” said Nanaia Mahuta.

Wāhine (women) and whenua (land) are intrinsically linked. Many of our stories refer to the connection between wāhine and whenua. And it’s apt given the role of Te Tumu Paeroa is connecting people with their land.

“I am keen to ensure that an increased focus to support Māori land owners to their whenua with strengthened governance support continues to define the role of the trustee in this next phase. I am confident that Dr Severne can achieve that.”

The Māori Trustee is established under the Māori Trustee Act 1953. The Act requires that the Māori Trustee is appointed by the Minister for Māori Development.

“Dr Severne brings more than 16 years of executive management with a depth of skill in strategy development and operations.

“In both the private and public sectors Dr Severne has led highly effective teams focussing on growing organisations, communities and opportunities,” said Nanaia Mahuta

Dr Severne’s start date is yet to be confirmed.
