Inbox: New chair to integrate NZIM

The New Zealand Institute of Management (NZIM) has appointed Gary Sturgess, chief executive of Hospice South Auckland, as its new national chairman. He succeeds professional director Phillip Meyer.
Sturgess joined the NZIM board in 2005 and was elected deputy chairman in 2009, however his connection with NZIM goes back to 1977 when he joined NZIM’s Southern division. He joined the Auckland division in 2001 and its board in 2003, standing down in 2009 after serving on the board for six years, the last four as chairman.
Sturgess is Life Fellow of NZIM and was appointed Justice of the Peace in 1989.
In his new role as chairman, he is fully committed to the successful implementation of an amalgamation programme which will see NZIM repositioned as truly national organisation.
