Media statement by Retirement Commissioner Diane Maxwell


May 22, 2019

Statement by Retirement Commissioner Diane Maxwell in response to the report of the investigation into allegations made against her of bullying:

I am pleased that the report found that bullying conduct had not occurred and I am looking forward to returning to work. This has been an incredibly difficult period for me and my family, and I want to thank my partner and children for their enormous support.

While the report made a finding of no bullying, it did indicate that some previous staff had difficulty with my communication style. I have reflected on the points made and will ensure that my communication style is professional, courteous and respectful to all staff.

I want to thank Peter Cordtz for doing such a great job as Acting Retirement Commissioner, and my staff for carrying on with some wonderful work through a difficult time.

The focus for my remaining period in office will be on the CFFC objectives of delivering financial capability and increased wellbeing. It is such important work. We’ve got a number of projects about to become effective for the benefit of all New Zealanders, and I look forward to sharing news of these with you soon.
