Media Release

21 August 2012

New Chair for Workplace Savings NZ

A new Chairman has been elected to the industry body representing the workplace savings industry, Workplace Savings NZ – the voice of workplace savings.

Kerry Haycock who is both chair of the Airways Superannuation Plan and Manager, Strategy, Investments & Performance with Airways New Zealand, is the new chairman replacing David Ireland.

Kerry will lead the Workplace Savings NZ Council as it works with industry to bed down legislative and regulatory change, and works with government and officials on the revamp of securities law (the Financial Markets Conduct Bill) and the imminent KiwiSaver periodic disclosure regime.

The announcement was made at the Workplace Savings NZ National Conference held in Auckland.

It is an exciting time for the workplace savings industry, with the maturing state of KiwiSaver and the recent launch of the Retirement Expenditure Guidelines, a joint initiative between Workplace Savings NZ and the New Zealand Centre for Personal Financial Education.

Outgoing Chairman David Ireland has been praised for his professional leadership of the council over the past four years.

"David's commitment and energy has played a large part in Workplace Savings NZ delivering on its mission of advancing the sustainable, effective and efficient delivery of workplace savings outcomes for all involved," said Bruce Kerr, Executive Director of Workplace Savings NZ.

Ian Miller (TOWER New Zealand) also stood down from the Workplace Savings NZ Council after serving four years as a Council member.

Tim McGuinness has been seconded to replace Ian, bringing a wealth of experience in corporate super to the Council.
