The Institute of Directors in New Zealand (IoD) has announced the appointment of Bay of Plenty’s Glenn Snelgrove to the role of interim chief executive, following the resignation of Simon Arcus.
Mr Snelgrove is an experienced governance practitioner and serving member of the IoD and is currently a member of council, chairman of the HR Committee and chairman of the Bay of Plenty Branch Committee.
He also holds numerous governance positions including as chairman of the South Waikato District Council Risk and Audit Committee, chairman of the Lake Tarawera Wastewater Steering Committee and as a member of the Lake Rotorua Rotoiti Sewage Steering Committee.
IoD president Michael Stiassny welcomed Mr Snelgrove’s appointment.
“As a long time contributor to the IoD and member of the council, Mr Snelgrove brings a wealth of governance knowledge and valuable experience. His leadership will stand the Institute in good stead while we undertake a recruitment process,” Mr Stiassny said.
Mr Arcus, who was the chief executive since July 2015, but had acted in the role from November 2014, resigned recently due to personal reasons.
Mr Arcus was known for his governance experience, advocacy and knowledge, having established IoD’s thought leadership hub the Governance Leadership Centre.
