Auckland Airport appoints NED
We are delighted to have partnered with Auckland Airport in the appointment of Mark Cairns as Non-Executive Director.
Mark is currently Chair of Freightways Limited, a Director of Sanford Limited and a Director of Meridian Energy.
As New Zealand moves toward a strong external focus reigniting a once dominant tourism sector, infrastructure rebuild at AIAL will play a pivotal role in ensuring that important momentum is achieved to support economic and industry recovery.
Prior to his governance career, Mark was a highly successful Chief Executive Officer of the Port of Tauranga for a period of 16 years where his tenure was marked by over- achievements across a range of key economic, cultural and infrastructure- build metrics.
In 2019, Mark was a proud winner of the INFINZ Caldwell Leadership Award in recognition of his successes as CEO of Port of Tauranga and broader industry and national leadership.
““Mark brings a wealth of experience to Auckland Airport at a time when the organisation is gearing up for the recovery and ramping up its infrastructure building programme”.”- Patrick Strange, Chair
