• Iwi asset holding company

Ngāti Maniapoto is a vibrant pre-settlement iwi based on the west coast of the Central North Island. Te Kupenga o Maniapoto Limited (Te Kupenga) is the commercial entity and asset holding company that governs the current commercial assets of Maniapoto Māori Trust Board (MMTB).  As Maniapoto prepares for the finalisation of its settlement and the changes this will require, it is seeking to appoint three independent directors to the Te Kupenga board.

We are seeking candidates with broad commercial governance experience and knowledge in PSGE establishment including the transition process and financial structure and/or the fisheries and seafood industry.  A depth of experience to contribute around the board table during a time of transition, while holding true to the values and philosophy of Maniapoto is essential.

The board currently holds four meetings a year in Hamilton and these are paid positions.
