Christchurch City Holdings Ltd (CCHL) has a new chair, with the appointment of business advisor, Bryan Pearson, to the role.

Christchurch City Council voted unanimously to appoint Mr Pearson (pictured) for a three-year term, effective immediately, following a recommendation from the Appointments Committee, consisting of Mayor Phil Mauger, Deputy Mayor Pauline Cotter, and external commercial advisor, Gill Cox.

Mr Pearson comes to the role with almost 30 years experience in chief executive and board chair positions in the private and public sectors in New Zealand and Australia.

His career has spanned a number of sectors, including professional services, retail, manufacturing, global distribution, venues and events, healthcare, vertical infrastructure development, and education.

“We were mightily impressed by Bryan’s experience and skills. He’s focused on building relationships across a range of stakeholders and demonstrated a strong commitment to the role,” said Mayor Mauger.

“Bryan is well aware of the key challenges facing CCHL. We’re confident he will build a collaborative and inclusive Board.”

Mr Pearson says he is dedicated to the City and its future and motivated to support the Council and its subsidiaries.

“I’m committed to building trust and confidence between the Council and CCHL and to ensuring we are aligned and working well together in the city’s best interests,” he says.
