Scott's annual shareholders' meeting is in Dunedin at the end of the month and Mr Staynes has advised he will not be offering himself for re-election.
Mr Staynes, Dunedin's deputy mayor, was formerly plant manager at Fisher & Paykel Appliances' Mosgiel site for 10 years, and resigned in late 2006 rather than oversee the dismantling of the Mosgiel plant, before its closure.
In a market statement, Scott's board thanked Mr Staynes for his contribution during the past decade, which coincided with a period of great change and transformation for Scott.
