Acting Chief Executive For Department For Courts


Acting Chief Executive For Department For Courts

The State Services Commissioner, Michael Wintringham, announced today that he has asked the Secretary for Justice, Belinda Clark, to act as Chief Executive of the Department for Courts.

Ms Clark will take up the acting role on 19 March 2003. Mr Wintringham has yet to make a permanent appointment. Ms Clark will retain her current role as Chief Executive of the Ministry of Justice and Secretary for Justice.

Mr Wintringham said Ms Clark had an outstanding track record at the highest levels of government and the necessary drive and management experience to lead two government departments.

"Ms Clark is familiar with the work of the Department for Courts and the policy agenda that it is managing," Mr Wintringham said.

The Department for Courts is one of several government agencies that operate within the wider Justice sector. The Department has an operational focus and administers New Zealand's courts and tribunals systems.
