Wayne Walden appointed to lead TVNZ board

BUSINESSDESK: Former Maori Television chairman Wayne Walden has been tapped to head the Television New Zealand board.

Broadcasting Minister Craig Foss named Mr Walden as the new TVNZ chairman after the businessman joined the state-owned broadcaster's board last year.

He replaces John Anderson.

Mr Walden was chairman of Maori TV for four years, and served as managing director of Farmers Deka and chaired TranzRail, the company that has since become state-owned KiwiRail.

"He brings solid industry experience to the role, having also spent four years as the chair of Maori Television,” Mr Foss said.

Mr Walden's appointment is part of a new-look direction for the broadcaster, which tapped former House of Travel boss Kevin Kenrick as its new chief executive last month.

The state broadcaster more than tripled its profit to $19.2 million through the final six months of 2011, putting the government in line for a big dividend at the end of the June financial year.

The government has been keen on Crown-owned entities making bigger returns amid dwindling revenue streams from a lower tax take.

Unbelievable

You really have to shake your head at thia appointment. Shake, not nod.

What a high-powered, experienced board and management team they're putting together.

NOT.

Maybe it's a cunning plan - let TVNZ slide downhill to reduce objections to privatisation.

What a CV

Farmers Deka, TranzRail and Maori TV

..and spectacularly lacklustre in all three.

And Store Fund - the one which ended up costing ASB and then, Hellaby some serious money.

And who did they bought BBQ factory and spa from? None other than Mr Richwhite's brother (of Fay & Richwhite's infamous fame)!!!

Good one, Mr Wayne Walden! You sure know how to turn good businesses into bad ones!

your so funny Gooseball

Its not Wayne Waldon fault-your TVNZ is in a mess,see ever never asked to be put there on his own accord-he was selectively chosen-to be the right person to be appoint to the board to eliminate your dirty corporate corruptive scams.....so watch it...Moosehead
