New chairman for Te Papa
Sir Wira Gardiner has stepped down as chair of the board of Te Papa.
Arts and Culture Minister Chris Finlayson says since becoming chair in 2010 Sir Wira led the national museum through a period of significant change.
That included overseeing the appointment of a new chief executive, developing a new long term strategic plan and changing the organisational structure.
He’s been replaced by Auckland lawyer Evan Williams, a former chair of law firm Chapman Tripp who is one of New Zealand’s leading investors and land developers.
Mr Williams also helped the government negotiate co-management of the Waikato River for the Waikato-Tainui’s Treaty settlement.
He toihau hou, kua karangahia mō Te Papa Tongarewa
Kua heke iho ā Tā Wira Gardiner i tōnā tūranga toihau ō te Uepū ō Te Papa.
Hei tā te Minita i ngā take toi ahurea ā Chris Finlayson, mai anoo i te tau rua mano tekau, i noho ā Gardiner hei toihau ō Te Papa, ā, nanā ngā panonitanga nui i taua whare i arataki.
Ko te roia nei nō Tāmaki Makaurau, ā Evan Williams, te toihau hou.
Nanā te Kāwanatanga i āwhina ki te whakatutuki i te kaupapa whakahaere ngātahi i te awa ō Waikato, i raro i te whakataunga tiriti ā Tainui.
