Newman, who has been chair since 2004, is also taking a leave of absence of Wellington International Airport, where he is also chairman, and from his director's role at Infratil Airports Europe, the company said in a statement. He has been a director at Infratil since 1994, the year the infrastructure investor was listed by late founder Lloyd Morrison.
