New Group Manager for Regional Council

Iain Maxwell will be taking the role of Group Manager Resource Management at Hawke's Bay Regional Council.

Iain is well-known in Hawke's Bay through his time as regional manager of Hawke's Bay Fish & Game and in his current capacity as senior freshwater ecologist at the Cawthron Institute, where he is currently providing expertise for projects in the Hawke's Bay.

He takes over from Darryl Lew, who left last month to take up a role as Director of the Environment in Abu Dhabi.

The Regional Council's Chief Executive Andrew Newman says Iain brings a wealth of knowledge to the technical and planning role of the Council, as well a very strong understanding of the rivers and environment in the region.

"I have been very impressed with Iain's understanding of the challenges the Council and the region faces, and his proven ability to work constructively with many parties to generate solutions. I think Iain will be a very good fit for this organisation," he said.

Iain will join Hawke's Bay Regional Council on 7 November as he has a strong commitment to completing some of his work with the Cawthron.

At the Cawthron Institute he is part of team researching the effect of human activities on coastal and freshwater resources in a range of large and nationally significant projects. This includes investigation work for regional councils, energy sector, private companies, iwi organisations and Ministry of Science and Innovation, and providing technical support to the new Environment Protection Agency.
