|09 Jul 2020 12:21 PM|
The chief executive of Taranaki iwi Te Ātiawa's post settlement governance entity is moving on after six years.
Chair Liana Poutu says Hemi Sundgren has steered Te Kotahitanga o Te Ātiawa through its crucial establishment period.
He has established strategic partnerships and worked closely with the commercial company to optimise property and settlement rights to ensure a stable foundation for the trust, which now has a diversified portfolio of assets worth $110m.
He also oversaw the development of the Ka Uruora programme which includes a whānau savings programme, financial education programme and a housing programme to support whānau to enter home ownership.
Mr Sundgren starts his new role at Tourism NZ in October 2020.Copyright © 2020, UMA Broadcasting Ltd: www.waateanews.com
