Publishers Association of New Zealand announces Association Director Appointment

February 2017

The Council of the Publishers Association of New Zealand (PANZ) today announced the appointment of Catriona Ferguson to the role of Association Director.

Catriona is currently the Chief Executive of the New Zealand Book Council and was previously a Literary Advisor for Creative New Zealand. She brings a wealth of knowledge to the Association, particularly in the areas of grants and funding and equally a life-long passion for books, reading and outstanding creative content.

The Association fulfils a crucial role in advocating for the well-being of the New Zealand publishing industry and its member organisations.

Catriona will be replacing publishing industry stalwart Anne de Lautour, who after almost 10 years of dedicated service will be stepping down from the Association Director role in early April.
