Mr Francis has extensive experience in the business and governance areas, through his former roles and appointed offices with the Ministry of Health, the Universal College of Learning (UCOL), Skill New Zealand, Works and Development Services Corporation Ltd and more recently, the International Rugby Board’s Referee Selection Panel.

Mr MacLennan is a self-employed business service contractor from Nelson, with an established background as a chartered, cost and management accountant and has extensive governance experience. His appointment takes effect on 1 October 2006.

Mr MacLennan’s significant background in governance also includes a number of honorary and elected positions. He was a Ministerial appointee to the Council of Nelson Polytechnic (now the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology) and member of the Ministry of Education’s District Property Advisory Committee.

"Bob Francis and Ian MacLennan will bring substantial governance experience to their respective positions," Pete Hodgson said.

"I look forward to working with both Mr Francis and Mr MacLennan to improve health outcomes for the residents of the Wairarapa and Nelson Marlborough DHBs."

Pete Hodgson also thanked Mr Doug Matheson, the Wairarapa board’s former Chair, for his outstanding work during the last six years.
