New Zealand Government: New appointment to Reserve Bank board

June 19, 2014



Waikato-based company director Tania Simpson has been appointed to the board of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, Finance Minister Bill English says.

Ms Simpson is of Tainui, Ngai Tahu and Ngapuhi descent, and is the founding director of Maori policy advisory firm Kowhai Consulting Ltd. She is currently a director of Mighty River Power Ltd, AgResearch Ltd and is also a member of the Waitangi Tribunal. She will shortly retire as a director of Landcare Research.

"The Reserve Bank board will benefit from Ms Simpson's strong governance background across a range of sectors, and her deep understanding of the Maori economy," Mr English says.

"I am pleased a director of Ms Simpson's calibre has made herself available to serve on the board and I am confident she will add value to the bank's work."

Ms Simpson fills the vacancy left by Sue Sheldon's retirement earlier in 2014.

Mr English also confirmed the reappointment of Wellington-based company director Keith Taylor for a second term as a director of the bank. Mr Taylor is currently chair of the Government Superannuation Fund and a commissioner on the Earthquake Commission board.
