Howzat! Generate chair out

Changes to the top team at Generate.

Wednesday, September 20th 2023, 11:09AM

Scott Weenink has stepped down from his role as Generate chairman to focus on his new role as chief executive of New Zealand Cricket.

Current non-executive director, Peter Brook, will step into the role as chairman – a position that he has held previously.

Meanwhile, the company has appointed Helen Robinson  as a non-executive director.

She has extensive governance experience including within the technology, financial markets and environmental sectors. Robinson has held senior executive positions, including as managing director of Microsoft New Zealand and has been a founder of several businesses.

In a statement, Generate says Weenink "has been a significant supporter of Generate right from the start and has made an enormous contribution as a non-executive director, and recently as our chairman. He’s been with us as we’ve grown and played a major role as we transitioned from start-up to mature business."

"His contribution to our governance has been hugely valuable. Our loss is New Zealand Cricket’s gain, and whilst we’re sorry to see Scott go, we’re thrilled he has such an incredible new role, and one that we know means so much to him,” Generate chief executive Henry Tongue said.

Weenink says: “Being involved in the Generate journey has been one of the highlights of my career to date. It’s been a privilege to have had the opportunity to contribute to, and have a close-up view of, a New Zealand success story. The business has grown from a start-up, taking on the established players, to a business with circa 130,000 KiwiSaver members and $4.5billion in savings.”
