Ngai Tahu elder Sir Tipene O’Regan, Waikato Tainui chief executive Parekawhia McLean and Atihau Whanganui Incorporation chair Mavis Mullins are among the high flyers on the board of the new Superdiversity Leadership Council.

Superdiversity Centre chair Mai Chen says the 12 members embody the future face of business leadership in ethnically superdiverse New Zealand.

The council is expected to guide the work of the Superdiversity Centre and serve as a forum through which members can provide leadership on ethnic superdiversity issues.

The formation of the council follows the launch of Ms Chen’s Superdiversity Stocktake, which looked at the implications for business and government of New Zealand’s increasing ethnic diversity.

The centre’s patron is former governor general Sir Anand Satyanand.

Other members include real estate innovator Mike Pero, insurance industry veteran Naomi Ballantyne, professional directors Mark Tume and Graeme Wong, New Zealand Superannuation Fund chief executive Adrian Orr, China Travel Service cief executive Lisa Li, Bank of India founding director Tarun Kanji, technology entrepreneur Mitchell Pham, and Pacifica national president Caren Rangi.
