He chairs several statutory entities and companies and is a director on many company boards, including chair of the Tūpuna Maunga Authority and chair of Te Pūia Tāpapa (the Māori Investment fund).
He also has extensive experience chairing large iwi collectives in the Hauraki and Auckland regions. Paul is currently the deputy chair of Panuku.
The appointment is for a three-year term commencing on 2 December 2020.
