New chair for Kāinga Ora

Simon Moutter has today been appointed the new Chair of Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities.

Housing Minister, Chris Bishop said Mr Moutter (pictured) had extensive change leadership experience as the Chief Executive at Powerco, Auckland International Airport, and then Spark NZ, where he won the Deloitte Top200 NZ CEO of the Year in 2017.

He will step into the role on 4 June.

Mr Bishop today announced a series of immediate actions in response to the independent review of Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities.

“Further consideration of the Board composition is ongoing with a refreshed Board expected to be in place in July. Ministers will then issue a new Letter of Expectations which makes crystal clear our expectations regarding Kāinga Ora’s focus on fiscal sustainability, value for money, and a ‘back to basics’ approach for their essential functions,” said Mr Bishop.

“The first task of the refreshed Board will be to present a Kāinga Ora turnaround plan to Ministers by the end of the year, which focuses on returning Kāinga Ora to financial sustainability and eliminating losses.

“We thank Sir Bill English, Ceinwen McNeil and Simon Allen for their important and thorough work,” Mr Bishop said.
