Nick Smith has just announced that John Judge will replace former CTU President Ross Wilson as Chairman of ACC. Other board appointments will be confirmed by the end of March.
Judge has a very strong background in financial management and governance. He was Chief Executive of Ernst & Young for 12 years and serves on a number of boards, and is the Chair of both Te Papa and the Auckland Art Gallery Foundation. So he seems well skilled at balancing financial objectives with wider social objectives. He also is on the advisory boards to both the Auckland University and Otago University Schools of Business.
Labour appointed Judge to the Te Papa Board in 2000, so presumably will find it difficult to attack his appointment to chair ACC.Tags: ACC, John Judge, Nick Smith, Ross Wilson
