Lloyd Morrison has died following a prolonged battle against leukaemia. He was aged only 54.
He was one of Wellington’s finest. At the age of 30 he set up Infratil, and it has become a major infrastructure company.
He also led the campaign to change the NZ flag, and helped bail out the Phoenix.
Lloyd was also a big supporter of the arts – setting up a musical trust and has served as a director of the NZSO and trustee of Chamber Music NZ Foundation.
He has been given so many awards for business leadership, I won’t even name them. Suffice to say he was a brilliant businessman, and a passionate New Zealander and Wellingtonian who did much for his country and city.
My condolences to his family, and closest friends.
