STATE SERVICES COMMISSION MEDIA RELEASE
1 JULY 2013


Acting Director-General of Ministry for Primary Industries announced

State Services Commissioner Iain Rennie has today announced the appointment of Scott Gallacher as Acting Director-General and Chief Executive of the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).

Mr Gallacher is currently MPI’s Deputy Director-General Resource Management and Programmes. He will take up the position from 29 July 2013 when the current Director-General, Wayne McNee, leaves MPI to take up a role in the private sector.

Mr Gallacher joined the Ministry of Fisheries in January 2009 as Chief Legal Adviser. He moved to become Director Strategy, Planning and Governance in the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in early 2011 before taking up his current role in MPI in late 2011.

Scott has worked in legal private practice in both New Zealand and Australia, as well as with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, including four years in Geneva where he mainly worked on World Trade Organisation (WTO) issues.

The State Services Commission is currently recruiting for a permanent Director-General for MPI.
