Minister announces new appointments to Careers New Zealand Board

Education Minister Hekia Parata today announced two appointments to the Careers New Zealand board.

Peter Hughes has been appointed Chair of the Careers New Zealand board replacing Arthur Graves.

“Professor Hughes is a highly skilled individual who brings substantial experience in government and leadership,” says Ms Parata.

Dale Karauria has been appointed as a member of the board replacing Tina Wehipeihana-Wilson who has served with the Careers New Zealand Board for seven years.

“Dale has a wealth of experience in Māori development and advisory roles in education. This is a particularly important skill set for the Careers New Zealand board at this time,” says Ms Parata.

Ms Parata also extended her thanks to Arthur Graves and Tina Wehipeihana-Wilson for their services to the Careers New Zealand board.

“Careers New Zealand has gained significantly from their experience and I am grateful for the valuable contributions they have both made.”

The appointments to Career New Zealand’s board are for a full term of three years commencing 6 August and 1 September 2012, respectively.
