Chief Executive Officer - Ngāti Porou Holding Company

Reference Number: 384850aa

Location: Gisborne

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

Are you keen to blaze a brand new trail in 2020?

Ngāti Porou is one of the largest Iwi in New Zealand, and is seeking a highly motivated and innovative leader for its commercial arm – Ngāti Porou Holding Company Ltd.

As our first full-time CEO you will help shape, and then execute, our strategy to ignite the full potential of our economic base. We are focused on the next five years and the next 500 years after that. We don’t expect you to see out the latter but it’s negotiable.

Executive and commercial management and leadership experience is a must, as well as a thick skin to handle our AGMs.

As CEO you will have executive oversight of our financial investments, staple businesses in farming, seafood and forestry, while bringing sharper focus to our direct investments in horticulture, manuka honey, tourism and technology.

You will be based in beautiful Tūranganui-a-Kiwa, and the remuneration package will include sunshine, surf, crayfish (performance dependent) and corporate tickets to any Ngāti Porou East Coast rugby home game.

If you think you’ve got what it takes, to apply in the strictest of confidence now, please complete the ‘apply for this job’ application form, attaching your cover letter and CV. Applications close on 31 January 2020 at mid-day. Emails will be electronically acknowledged and further correspondence may be by email.
