Julie Haggie appointed CEO of Transparency International NZ

Julie Haggie appointed CEO of Transparency International New Zealand

Transparency International New Zealand (TINZ) has appointed Julie Haggie to become its Chief Executive Officer (CEO). She will take up this appointment on 10 September.

Julie is ideally qualified to help lead TINZ through the next stage of growth in creating awareness, influence and capacity to prevent corruption, improve transparency and integrity. In a newly created full-time management role, Julie will be working with the TINZ Staff, Patron, Directors, Members with Delegated Authority and partners to bring TINZ principles to greater effect for New Zealanders, our government, business sector, civil society and wider community.

Julie Haggie brings to TINZ 20 years of experience in CEO or senior leadership roles. For the last eight years, she has led the Home and Community Health Association during a very challenging time.

"Julie enjoys leading and influencing for change and positive outcomes, and that is what attracted her to the TINZ position. Her appointment will enable us to grow our efforts more widely across sectors throughout New Zealand. She brings a warm principled quality of leadership which will greatly add to our ability to improve our society," according to Berndon Wilson, TINZ Director and Personnel Committee Chair.

"I believe in the importance of transparency, accountability and open decision-making to the New Zealand brand, and the social fabric of society," says Ms. Haggie. "I am excited to contribute my skills and leadership to this endeavour," she adds.

This appointment has been made after exhaustive efforts to define the role and find the right person. Julie will be key to TINZ's ongoing effort to expand the national understanding of the importance of stronger integrity systems as the best antidote to corruption. There is much to do.
