Air New Zealand Chairman Tony Carter to retire in September 2019

Air New Zealand Chairman Tony Carter will retire at the airline’s Annual Shareholders’ Meeting in September next year and be replaced by current Director Dame Therese Walsh. Mr Carter has held the role of Chairman at the airline since 2013 after joining the Board in 2010.

Mr Carter signalled to the Board last year that 2019 was likely to be his final year at the helm of the national carrier and by making this decision now allows fellow Directors the time to adequately plan for his succession.

Dame Therese is currently Chairman of TVNZ, a Director of ASB and Contact Energy and a previous Director of the NZX. She is also a Trustee of Wellington Regional Stadium, a Board member of Antarctica New Zealand and Pro Chancellor at Victoria University. Her appointment as Chairman of Air New Zealand will coincide with the conclusion of her tenure as Chairman of TVNZ.
