Education Minister, Hon Chris Hipkins, has appointed Jeremy Morley to Te Pūkenga Council.

Te Pūkenga Council Chair Murray Strong says he looks forward to working with Mr Morley, who attended his first Council meeting on Tuesday 11 October 2022.

“We’re delighted to have Jeremy join us. He brings more than 30 years of experience in major change processes, financial and operational management,” Mr Strong says.

“Jeremy has particular experience supporting the education sector. He has worked on major projects with universities and Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) to reform their financial, operational and academic performance.”

Mr Morley takes up the role recently vacated by Peter Winder, who took on the position of Acting Chief Executive of Te Pūkenga New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology on Friday 8 July 2022.

Mr Morley was a Director at PwC New Zealand (part-time) and an independent consultant to the Risk and Audit Committee of the Tertiary Education Commission. He has stepped down from these roles to take up his appointment to Te Pūkenga Council.

He has worked on assignments with Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, Lincoln University and Taratahi Agricultural College and was Chair of the Unified Funding System Working Group Review.

Mr Morley’s appointment runs from 1 September 2022 to 31 August 2025.
