Tainui Group Holdings has announced the appointment of Robert Batters as general manager operations.
Chief executive Chris Joblin says Batters brings considerable experience in complex, large scale infrastructure and development projects to completion.
“Robert’s experience in shepherding major projects to completion will be a great asset for our Ruakura project as the first stage of the inland port gets underway over the coming year, and as the build-out continues over the coming years,” Joblin says.
“His specialist knowledge in the electricity sector will also serve us well as the landowner for a number of significant sites occupied with electricity infrastructure,” Mr Joblin says.
Batters has experience working for Transpower and Meridian Energy.
“I am looking forward to getting involved and playing my part to grow the commercial assets of the Waikato-Tainui people,” Batters says.
