Todd Corp, the holding company for New Zealand’s wealthiest family, has announced former AWE managing director Bruce Wood will join its board.
Woods headed the Australian-based oil and gas exploration company, AWE from 2007 to 2011, while serving as an executive director of business development for the company for most of that time. Before joining AWE he was general manager at Delhi Petroleum.
Adelaide-based Wood was appointed to the role on July 4, according to a statement on the Companies Office.
In November, former Fay Richwhite director Geoff Ricketts was named as chair of Todd Corp after the retirement of incumbent chairman John Todd.
Todd Corp, named by Forbes magazine as New Zealand’s first billion dollar turnover company, has extensive holdings in the oil and gas, commercial property, and communications sectors, having started life in 1885 as a wool-scouring business and morphed in the 1930’s into vehicle assembly.
