The ATT board is delighted to announce the appointment of Roger Gower as a Trustee and Board Chair. His appointment takes effect from 25 June 2019.
Roger brings to ATT wide experience and strategic ability at the governance level across both the public and private sectors and over a number of industries.
Roger is also Chair of PrimePort Timaru, NZ Food Innovation Auckland (The Food Bowl), NXT Fuels Ltd and CSM Group. He has a BCom from the University of Auckland, an MBA from Massey University and an MPhil from the UK’s University of Cambridge.
Board deputy chair, Neil Gillespie says, “With the recent appointment of Helen Stephens as Chief Executive and now Roger’s appointment as Chair, ATT’s leadership is primed and ready to fulfill its long-term strategic goals, and that of its stakeholders, in growing the business through the services it provides to its apprentices and business hosts.”
Neil also acknowledges the 10 years of service given by outgoing chair, Peter Fitzsimmons. “Peter has been a very steady hand to steer the ATT ship. Our business has grown and strengthened over his tenure and the Board is very grateful for the energy and vision that Peter has given to ATT for nearly a decade. We wish him all the best in his well deserved retirement.”
