Ngāi Tahu’s Solomon acclaimed for vision
He's been named the visionary leader of 2013 in Management magazine's national business awards, which are sponsored by consulting firm Deloittes.
The judges said he was one of the most constructive players involved in trying to secure a positive, fair and enlightened future for New Zealand.
The cited not only Ngāi Tahu's commercial success but the way the organisation saw that success as the way to secure financial, cultural, physical and spiritual well being for future generations.
Mr Solomon says the award came as a surprise, and the vision was that of the tribe members who set up the structures when Ngāi Tahu secured its treaty settlement in the 1990s.
