Specialists in strategic governance, agribusiness and external relations are joining Massey University's College of Business Advisory Board.

Massey graduate Mike Taitoko of Tuia Consulting, Tony Wright of Fonterra and Westpac corporate affairs director Sue Foley will work with the board to ensure teaching and research meets the needs of the business community.

They join 16 other leaders from industries, professional bodies, local and government organisations. 

Taitoko has a Master of Business Administration with distinction, is a founding director of Wellington-based Tuia Group and works in the business consulting division. His areas of expertise include strategy and governance, enterprise growth and development, commercial and economic development and Maori tourism.

Wright is a shareholder services manager for Fonterra, based in Christchurch, with responsibility for the lower North Island and South Island. He previously worked as a regional manager for agribusiness with the Bank of New Zealand.

Taitoko and Wright attended the board's meeting in Manawatu last week.

Foley, an experienced public relations practitioner and a former Massey Assistant Vice Chancellor (External Relations), will attend her first meeting at Albany in September.

College of Business Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Lawrence Rose says the college engages widely to ensure its programmes and research are up-to-date.

"We want our students to graduate with the relevant skills they need to be successful in their chosen industry. The board provides invaluable independent advice to help us in our mission to create leaders and transform business."
