Change ahead for New Zealand School Trustees Association

January 2017

For the first time in its 27 years the NZSTA Board has announced the appointment of a new CEO, Nick Inskip.

Nick Inskip has considerable experience in governance and working with boards on developing and executing strategy, and implementing change. He also has strong financial literacy skills.

Originally from Australia and with a background in mechanical engineering and quality assurance, Nick comes to NZSTA from 5 years as CEO with Icon Edge, 3 years as CEO for AJ Parkes & Co and 7 years as General Manager, Industry Development with the Heavy Engineering Research Association.

NZSTA’s outgoing General Manager Ray Newport retires after 27 years with the organisation. Ray started with NZSTA on its first day, 1 April 1989. Ray has been a steady hand on the tiller, and has navigated the organisation through difficult times to its current strong position.

Ray is looking forward to an active retirement on the lifestyle block he and his wife Alison have bought on the Kapiti coast. Ray’s departure truly marks the end of an era for NZSTA.
