Network Tasman Announces Associate Director Appointment
Consumer‐owned electricity lines business Network Tasman Limited and shareholder Network Tasman Trust are pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Venus Sood Guy as Associate Director under their Associate Director Programme. The Associate Director Programme is designed to offer emerging directors the opportunity to accelerate their boardroom experience for a period of 16 months on the board of Network Tasman.
Network Tasman board chair John McCliskie said “The aim of the programme is to enhance the capability of senior leaders embarking on a governance career and to increase the availability of talented people for appointment to boards within the Nelson/Tasman region.”
“On behalf of the trustees and board of Network Tasman, I am delighted to announce the appointment of Venus as Associate Director of Network Tasman” he said.
Venus’s current role is as Operations Manager at New World Nelson City. She is also chair of the Nelson Tasman Kindergarten Association, a board member of the Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce and of Abbeyfield New Zealand, and a committee member of the Institute of Directors ‐ Nelson Marlborough.
In welcoming Venus to the Network Tasman board as an Associate Director, Mr. McCliskie said, “the appointment will provide further support to emerging directors with ongoing mentoring, opportunities for professional development and social networking within the governance environment.”
“Network Tasman is committed to supporting the future growth of the Nelson/Tasman region, and we need to create the next generation of leaders in order to do so” he said.
Network Tasman’s lines charges will decrease from 1 April 2019. This is good news for almost all consumers as it means the average residential customer’s lines charge will fall by $3.50 per month (including GST).
Electric vehicles are attracting a lot of interest in our region and it's great to see the community using the charging stations Network Tasman has installed.
Two new stations to fill up your car are being built in the region but there won’t be a drop of fuel in sight. Rather than the traditional petrol and diesel pumps, the two stations in Takaka and Nelson will be pumping energy.
