Te Arawa Management Limited (TAML)

TAML originated from the desire of the shareholder to develop capacity in a separate yet wholly owned entity to optimise commercial resources, both those secured under and as part of the Te Arawa Lakes Settlement and also the commercial assets of the former Te Arawa Māori Trust Board

TAML is tasked with maximising the creation of wealth for the shareholder from the company’s operations, given the resources available to the company. The company is a new entrant to the commercial sector but it is looking to quickly assert leadership amongst seasoned operators across a range of relevant activities. A key principle is that the activities will be approved through a robust process, will be professionally managed, and will operate in accordance with accepted commercial practice.

The Directors of TAML are Mana Newton (Chairman), Tanira Kingi, Roana Bennett, Geoff Rolleston and David Tapsell.  The Board observer is Ngata Tapsell.
