1 June 2007

Te Ohu Kaimoana Announces New Chairman Of Aotearoa Fisheries, Sealord

Te Ohu Kaimoana today announced changes to the board of Aotearoa Fisheries Limited (AFL).

"There have been a number of appointments as a result of the recent resignation of Mr Rob McLeod from the boards of AFL and Sealord, as well as the board of Te Ohu Kaimoana," Mr Archie Taiaroa, Deputy Chair said.

Mr Taiaroa said the current Chief Executive of AFL, Mr Robin Hapi, has been appointed chairman of AFL.

"The appointment of Mr Hapi to the board of AFL is a natural decision for Te Ohu Kaimoana. Mr Hapi has been the CE of AFL since it was established in 2004. He was previously the CE of the former Treaty of Waitangi Fisheries Commission and has been on the Sealord board since 1998. Mr Hapi has resigned his position as CEO of AFL and AFL will be undertaking a process to appoint a replacement.

"The appointment will enable Mr Hapi to continue the work he started as CE which has resulted in AFL becoming one of the eminent participants in the seafood industry", Peter Douglas, Chief Executive of Te Ohu Kaimoana, said.

In addition AFL has announced that Mr Hapi has been appointed as the Chairman of Sealord.

"This announcement comes only a matter of days after the appointment of the new Chief Executive of Sealord, Mr Graham Stuart, who takes over the role from Mr Doug McKay. An extensive worldwide search was undertaken for a new CE, and we are fortunate to have someone of Graham's calibre," Mr Hapi said.
