Hopkins on Port Otago board

Former Scott Technology chief executive Chris Hopkins has been appointed to the board of Port Otago.

Mr Hopkins, who is replacing Jane Taylor following her recent retirement from the position, was appointed by the owner of the port, the Otago Regional Council, last week.

In welcoming him to the board, ORC chairman Andrew Noone highlighted Mr Hopkins’ extensive experience in management and governance roles, including finance, export and international trade, engineering, audit and risk, regulatory compliance and project contracting.

Mr Hopkins resigned from his position on the board of Dunedin City Holdings Ltd to take up the role which would start on July 1.
