New manager for Ngati Pahauwera Development Trust

Media Release 19 August 2013.

Ngati Pahauwera Development Trust announces the recent appointment of Wayne Johnson as General Manager.

Following the recent substantive settlement of Treaty claims, Ngati Pahauwera Development Trust has started to build their infrastructure through the appointment of a General Manager.

Ngati Pahauwera Trust Chairperson, Toro Waaka said, “We are fortunate to have appointed Mr Wayne Johnson as our General Manager. There is a great match between the Wayne’s skills and knowledge and what the iwi were looking for. Wayne has a background in law and business that will help him bring fruition to our focus on infrastructure development and a strong base from which to deliver benefits to our 8,000 registered members.”

Mr Waaka goes on to say, “Wayne has already shaken things up by securing more suitable premises in Wairoa to announce that Ngati Pahauwera is open for business. He has a really good understanding of the systems and the means to deliver responsive services to people through his work with the Whanganui River Maori Trust Board, Te Runanga o Te Awa Tupua o Whanganui, Ratana and other iwi organisations. He is a real people person and brings a wealth of networks and support that will benefit Ngati Pahauwera.”

Wayne Johnson said, “I am keen to ensure that we have really strong two way communication and engagement with our whanau, hapu and iwi. I want to make sure that we are delivering on the development that they want to see, rather than what we think they want”. When pressed about his outside interests Mr Johnson said, ”A pet interest of mine is indigenous intellectual property. I do have a creative side that I have enjoyed expressing through being involved in the production of Songs from the Inside, Behind the Brush and Te Matatini, sharing our songs and stories with others. “

Ngati Pahauwera Chair Toro Waka said, “Wayne has Wairoa origins and an enthusiasm and passion to help his community. His business acumen, innovative and positive approach to solutions is a real asset to where Ngati Pahauwera is today. Wayne will have an opportunity to meet formally with our members at our information sharing hui on Sunday 25th August and to present as General Manager at our Hui A Iwi or Annual General Meeting on 15th September at Waipapa A Iwi Marae, Mohaka. We are looking forward to working together to support the cultural, social and economic development of Ngati Pahauwera.”
