Two senior Māori business people have been appointed to the boards of Auckland council controlled organisations.
Tiwana Tibble, who recently stepped down as the chief executive of Ngāti Whātua ō Orakei Trust Board, is to be a director of Auckland Council Property.
Diana Puketapu, who is Ngāti Whātua’s chief financial officer, goes on the board of Auckland Council Investments.
David Taipari, the chair of Auckland's Independent Māori Statutory Board, says the appointments not only recognise their respective skills and expertise but also demonstrate progress towards increasing Māori leadership and participation in local government processes and organisations.
