Unitec Institute of Technology’s Interim Chief Executive Merran Davis will continue to lead the organisation through 2019.

Unitec Commissioner Murray Strong said he was delighted to extend Ms Davis’s appointment, particularly with sector changes expected next year under the Roadmap 2020 project.

“The excellent work which Merran, the Executive Leadership Team, and all the staff at Unitec have undertaken has put the institute back on the path to ongoing success for its students.

“Having the continuity and stablity of Merran’s leadership will help to ensure staff and students are well supported to achieve their goals.”
