Auckland International Airport has appointed Patrick Strange as its new chair effective October 31, the company said in a statement.

Strange succeeds Henry van der Heyden who will retire as chair at the next annual meeting after five years in the role and nine years on the board. Strange has been a director of Auckland Airport since 2015 and is currently chair of Chorus, and a director of Mercury NZ, NZX and Essential Energy.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to the further growth and development of Auckland Airport. I look forward to working with the directors, CEO Adrian Littlewood and his management team as we continue to deliver for our customers, stakeholders and shareholders and as we invest in building the airport of the future," Strange said.

The shares were last down 0.1 percent at $6.715 and are up 3.7 percent so far this year.
