New Trustees in 2019
The Ōtaki & Porirua Trusts Board has welcomed Anne Carter and Barry Lyver as new trustees in mid-2019. Anne, who is Ngāti Kapumanawawhiti, brings a strong background in governance and experience on a range of Boards. Barry Lyver, Ngāti Toa Rangatira, has a background in banking and financial management. Barry and Anne are the new members of the Audit, Investment and Risk Committee, working closely with General Manager, Troy Hobson.
Over the past year the Board has farewelled retiring members Anihaera Armstrong, Doug Logan, Whatarangi Winiata and Whare Akuhata. Their contribution has been acknowledged by the Board and the Ministry of Education which recommends appointments to the Board. Ngā mihi ki a koutou.
The Board meets monthly. There are 7 trustees: Willis Katene, Denise Hapeta, Rachael Selby, Anne Carter, Hera Eparaima, Rob Kuiti and Barry Lyver.
The Board manages land in Ōtaki and within the surrounding area, mainly dairy farms and rental properties. The Board maintains these operations for the beneficiaries of the OPTB.

The Board is registered as a charitable entity. The office is at 144 Tasman Road, Ōtaki.
