Industry Leader on University Council

Michael Daniell, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, has joined The University of Auckland Council.

He has been appointed by the Minister for Tertiary Education for a period of four years.

Fisher & Paykel Healthcare employs more than 2000 people world-wide, including many University of Auckland graduates, and is a leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of innovative medical devices. Its products and systems are sold in more than 120 countries, earning revenue of around $500 million annually. Mr Daniell received his Bachelor of Engineering degree in electrical engineering with honours from the University in 1979.

He joined Fisher & Paykel as a product design engineer. He served as technical manager and general manager before being appointed to his current position in 2001.

In 2009 the New Zealand Herald made him its New Zealander of the Year in Business.

The University’s Chancellor, Roger France, said: “Mr Daniell’s background and experience as the Chief Executive Officer of one of the country’s great international high tech success stories, itself a major employer of graduates, will be enormously valuable to Council and the University.”
