Tainui Group Holdings has appointed Lee Taharangi Gray, the head of Maaori business at professional services firm Deloitte as its first future director.

TGH chair Sir Henry van der Heyden says the appointment was part of the company's efforts to foster talented tribal future commercial governors for the iwi.

Under the new future director programme, Te Ohu Amorangi, people are appointed for two years to sit alongside the board, learning institutional knowledge and company strategy.

Sir Henry says it will allow Mr Gray to gain valuable commercial governance experience and further build on his track record of supporting Maaori organisations and developing businesses in line with kaupapa Maaori values.

Mr Gray, who works out of Deloitte's Rotorua office, previously worked as financial controller for an ASX-listed organisation and was a committee member and advisor to Ngaai Te Rangi Settlement Trust's investment board.

TGH manages around $950 million of assets, with current projects including the development of the 480-hectare Ruakura inland port and logistics hub and construction of the Te Arikinui Pullman Auckland Airport Hotel with joint venture partner Auckland Airport.
