Turners Automotive Group (NZX/ASX: TRA) has confirmed that Lauren Quaintance has been appointed to the board as an additional independent director. She has been working with Turners as an emerging director since October 2021 and, more recently, as a director of Turners’ subsidiary DPL Insurance.

Quaintance has additional directorships with ChristchurchNZ and the Crusaders and has recently been appointed chief media and data officer for Sky TV.

Quaintance has had an extensive career within media, having worked for Fairfax Media (now Nine Entertainment Company) in Australia in senior management positions including general manager and managing editor. In 2013, she co-founded digital content marketing agency, Storyation, which was acquired by Rupert Murdoch’s NewsCorp in 2019.

Turners chair Grant Baker said: “Lauren’s experience in the digital and social marketing sector combined with her business acumen has proven to be a great fit for our business. Lauren has brought real value to our strategic direction and board discussions and we know this contribution will only continue to grow.”

Quaintance said: “I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the Turners Auto Group team and learning about the strategic priorities for the business over the last 18 months.

“I see lots of opportunity for this iconic Kiwi company to further improve customer connection and drive even more shareholder value.”

Quaintance’s appointment is effective from April 3. Shareholder approval will be sought at the annual shareholder meeting in August.
