A learning opportunity for the next generation of directors and a fresh perspective on the Company’s future direction.
The process for appointing Copyright Licensing New Zealand’s first intern to the Board attracted over 60 applications from young people who are keen to take their first step into governance. In creating the intern position, CLNZ is looking to provide a governance learning opportunity, and to encourage fresh and dynamic perspectives in the Board’s discussions and the company’s strategic direction.
Anaru Tuhi (Ngāpuhi Waikato-Tainui) will join the Board in May 2021 for an initial two-year term. Anaru is a Corporate Relations Partner at Spark New Zealand where he is leading a variety of communications strategies and bringing diversity of thought to key decisions. He is also an Auckland committee board member of FLINT – Future Leaders in Tech.
Chair of the CLNZ Board, Emeritus Prof. Pat Walsh said, “The work that the CLNZ Board has undertaken on effective governance in the past few years has set a platform for bringing someone new onto the Board."
"As with our director appointments, we used a skills framework for the intern position and sought someone who will contribute to the Board’s understanding of te ao Māori and/or Pasifika peoples. In addition to his knowledge of te ao Māori, Anaru’s experience in corporate communications and new technology rollouts, will provide valuable insights for CLNZ’s delivery of its Strategy.”
