CEO Ngati Porou Holding Company

Are you keen to blaze a brand new trail in 2020?
Ngati Porou is one of the largest iwi in New Zealand, and is seeking a highly motivated and innovative leader for its commercial arm – Ngati Porou Holding Company Ltd.

As our first full-time CEO you will help shape, and then execute, our strategy to ignite the full potential of our economic base. We are focused on the next five years, and the next 500 years after that. We don’t expect you to see out the latter, but it’s negotiable!
Executive and commercial management and leadership experience is a must, as well as a thick skin to handle our AGMs.

As CEO you will have executive oversight of our financial investments, staple businesses in farming, seafood and forestry, while bringing sharper focus to our direct investments in horticulture, manuka honey, tourism and technology.

You will be based in beautiful Turanganui-a-Kiwa, and the remuneration package will include sunshine, surf, crayfish (performance dependent) and corporate tickets to any Ngati Porou East Coast rugby home game.

If you think you’ve got what it takes, contact Nicholas Buck on +64 27 474 5344 or email for an application form and more information.
