E ngā uri o Maniapoto.
Chairman of the Maniapoto Maori Trust Board (MMTB), Tiwha Bell, has announced the appointment of Bella Takiari-Brame (Ngāti Rora, Ngāti Tumae, Ngāti Te Waha, Ngāti Waiora, Ngāti Takiari) to the role of Interim Chief Executive (CE) of the MMTB. This follows the departure of former CE Sonya Hetet earlier this month.
The Interim CE’s role will not only be to manage day-to-day operations of the Board but also ensure a robust process is carried out to appoint a CE who will lead the disestablishment of the Board as we transition towards the development of a new governance entity for Maniapoto
“We are pleased Bella has agreed to take on this role. She has been a MMTB Trustee since 2015 where her experience as a professional director and Chartered accountant has been a great asset to the Board” says Mr Bell.
Bella’s appointment will take effect from Moday 13 January 2020.
