Inbox: Honouring Sir John Anderson

Victoria University of Wellington has conferred an honorary Doctor of Commerce degree on Sir John Anderson. The move recognises Sir John’s achievements in business and service to the country.
He had long and successful career at the executive level in banking and finance. Sir John is particularly noted for leading the mergers of the National Bank of New Zealand with Rural Bank and Countrywide Bank. When the National Bank was sold to ANZ Bank he was appointed chief executive and director of ANZ National Bank, until retiring in 2005.
Sir John’s skills have been called upon by successive governments. He has held numerous chairmanships across fields as diverse as health, industry, media, rural services, finance, the environment, sport and regional governance.
Victoria University of Wellington’s Professor Pat Walsh says Sir John has been incredibly influential in New Zealand’s financial industry. “But he has also shared his wealth of experience with numerous other organisations. It is very appropriate for us to recognise and celebrate his service.” M
