Shipley to take board role at Genesis Energy

Dame Jenny Shipley has been appointed chairwoman of Genesis Energy as part of a string of state owned enterprise governance announcements made today.

The appointment of the former prime minister was one of 24, including reappointments, announced by State Owned Enterprises Minister Simon Power.

Dame Jenny replaces Brian Corban, who has served for the past 10 years, while another energy company, Mighty River Power, will be chaired by recently appointed board member Joan Withers, who replaces Carole Durbin.

Four new deputy chairs have also been confirmed, including former finance minister Michael Cullen (NZ Post), John Ashby (AsureQuality), Janine Smith (Kordia) and Trevor Janes (Mighty River Power).

Another former prime minister, Jim Bolger (NZ Post), and John Palmer (Solid Energy), have been reappointed as chairmen for 12 months each.

The appointments and reappointments, including other directorships, take effect from between November 1 and January 1.

This whole business of recycling best mates so the boats won't get rocked is not the way to move the country forward. When politicians are thrown out, it's for a very good reason.

Who made this decision? It wouldn't be another politician, would it...Let's check back...

Ah yes, Simon Power - because Key thinks it's a good idea.The temporary PM is certainly earning his knighthood.

Well, well, well...

The mood of cynicism, even anger at this sort of mates-jobs is very high, out in heartland NZ.
