The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) has announced that it created a new senior position to lead its ambitious growth and transformation work and further develop its people and culture.
The new role – Assistant Governor/General Manager, Transformation and People – will be based in the RBNZ’s Auckland branch and will be responsible for all people and culture, growth and transformation work, and building the central bank’s Auckland presence.
Governor Adrian Orr said the new role will support their growth and transformation plans, particularly in Auckland.
“As we explained in our Statement of Intent, we have a vision of ‘Great Team, Best Central Bank’. This means growing our Auckland presence, better connecting with our stakeholders, and building a culture which supports transformation and achievement,” Orr said.

As a result of the introduced position, the assistant governor/general manager of people and culture role that is currently held by Lindsay Jenkin will be disestablished.
Orr clarified that Jenkin supports the new role’s purpose, but will not step up to it.
“Lindsay has made an incredibly valuable contribution to the Reserve Bank’s success over many years, and remains a significant support of the Bank and its vision. She will leave the Bank with my and Board’s full support, respect, and friendship,” Orr explained.
Recruitment for the assistant governor/general manager, transformation and people role will begin later this year.
