Office of the Speaker of the NZ House of Representatives
Rt Hon Trevor Mallard
Tuesday 11 December

The Speaker of the House, Rt Hon Trevor Mallard, says he is delighted to announce the appointment of Rafael Gonzalez-Montero to the position of General Manager of the Parliamentary Service.

Mr Rafael Gonzalez-Montero will commence in the role on 27 January 2019 for a 5 year term.

“Rafael joins the Parliamentary Service after three and a half years as the Deputy Clerk of the House of Representatives, and over 12 years in the Office of the Clerk, six of those as a senior manager. He has led significant change in Select Committee Services, as well the way Parliament engages with the public. He has extensive experience in the parliamentary environment, and is well known to members”, Rt Hon Trevor Mallard says.

“As Clerk and Deputy, David Wilson and Rafael have formed a formidable team. I hope that this relationship results in the Office of the Clerk and the Parliamentary Service working very closely together.”

“I would also like to extend my thanks to outgoing General Manager David Stevenson for his work in the role for the past 5 years, and for his dedicated service to our Parliament rebuilding relationships after a particularly fraught period.”
