Tauranga Port CEO joins Meridian board
Fri, 06 Jul 2012 1:24p.m.
Port of Tauranga chief executive Mark Cairns is among a crop of new directors appointed to state-owned power companies ahead of their partial privatisation.
Mr Cairns is joining the board of Meridian Energy. Also appointed to Meridian is Sally Farrier, an expatriate, Melbourne-based energy sector consultant who is in business with TrustPower director Geoff Swier, and is listed on the Farrier Swier consulting group website as a director of Hydro Tasmania and an Australian National Water Commissioner.
MightyRiverPower is slated to go through a 49 percent sale process by the end of September.
Depending on market conditions and the float's success, another energy company float could occur as early as the first quarter of 2013, with Meridian widely viewed as the most likely next candidate.
State-Owned Enterprises Minister Tony Ryall also announced three new appointments to the Genesis Energy board.
They are Alison Andrew, general manager of Orica Chemicals, private equity specialist and former Emerald Capital managing director Andrew Clements, and KiwiRail director John Leuchars.
They replace retiring directors Barbara Elliston, Nicki Crauford, and Dennis Wood.
MightyRiverPower directors Trevor Janes, Jon Hartley and Michael Allen have been reappointed, while Alan Broome has been reappointed to the board of Solid Energy, the other state-owned energy company slated for partial sale.
