The directors of Lakes Leisure
have resigned, forcing the Queenstown Lakes District Council
to appoint a new board.
"The former directors of Lakes Leisure advised us today that
they did not wish to continue as directors in light of the
decision to bring the activities of Lakes Leisure back in
house," Queenstown Mayor Vanessa van Uden said in a
"Accordingly, to ensure ongoing governance and smooth
operation of the company, Council appointed three new
directors to the company."
The new directors are Ms van Uden, chief executive Adam
Feeley and chief financial Officer Stewart Burns.
"Given that Council has resolved to transfer the operations
performed by Lakes Leisure in house and disestablish the
company, it is not a situation where "business as usual"
directors are required," said Mayor van Uden.
She said that the current management team would continue to
run the day to day operations of the company.
