“Ms Walsh has been a Director of TVNZ since 2012 and has made a considerable contribution since her appointment. She will provide strong leadership support to the board in her new position as Deputy Chair.

“Together these women bring a breadth of experience and talent to TVNZ and I wish them well as they settle into their new roles.”
