Dame Patsy Reddy appointed as the Chair of New Zealand Rugby

We have great pleasure in congratulating Dame Patsy Reddy on her appointment as the first female Chair of New Zealand Rugby Board.   

It was a privilege for Sheffield Search to have supported the facilitation of Dame Patsy’s appointment to the Board earlier this year.

"Having supported New Zealand Rugby with Dame Patsy Reddy’s initial appointment to its board, we wish to congratulate her and the organisation on Dame Patsy’s appointment to the role of Chair. This represents a seminal moment for the sport in both the national and global arenas. A brilliant move!" - Ian Taylor, Sheffield North Island  Managing Director.

Former Governor-General the Rt Hon Dame Patsy Reddy has had extensive experience in governance and consulting roles in both the private and public sectors. Reddy served as New Zealand's Governor General from 2016 to 2021, following a career as a lawyer, director, and crown negotiator.

We wish Dame Reddy every success in their new role.
