Appointment of Independent Director

The board of NPT is pleased to announce the appointment of Tony Sewell as an Independent Director, following the casual vacancy created by the retirement of Tony McNeil earlier this year.

Tony Sewell was, until recently, Chief Executive of Ngai Tahu Property. During his twenty-year tenure at Ngai Tahu Property, Tony oversaw growth in the equity of the business from $50m to $600m. Since retiring from Ngai Tahu Property, Tony has begun to build his consulting business as well as take on a select number of directorships.

Tony Sewell has substantial governance experience and is currently President of the Canterbury Employers Chamber of Commerce, Chair of Business New Zealand, Deputy Chair of Hanmer Hot Pools, Director of Tama Asset Holding Company Limited and is a Chartered Director – Institute of Directors of New Zealand.

NPT will benefit hugely from Tony Sewell’s appointment as he brings a vast wealth of property industry experience at board level, which complements the extensive, broader business experience of the other board members.

After a period of consolidation, this appointment and the appointment of Tony Osborne as Chief Executive Officer, represent a significant step in establishing a framework for growth.
