New General Manager 

Kia ora everyone, it is my pleasure to advise of the appointment of Paul Broughton as General Manager of the Greytown Trust Lands Trust on a contract basis. Paul brings an extensive background in commercial property to the Trust where amongst other roles he has been the Portfolio Property Manager at Prime Property Group, Property Advisor – MPI and Asset Manager at Precinct Property (formerly AMP Office Trust).

From 2014, Paul stepped out of property and into business for himself where he is the Founder/ Director – C’est Cheese & Deli, based in Featherston. With his business performing strongly, Paul has accepted the opportunity to provide some expertise and support to the Trust over the next six – month period. I am excited about the positive impact and contribution Paul will deliver for the Trust where his experience in commercial property and solid relationship management skills will be key attributes in assisting to move the Trust forward.

Paul starts Tuesday 24 November and please join me in welcoming Paul on board.  

Kevin Murphy, our current General Manager, leaves the Trust on 26 November after five years of excellent service. Kevin will be missed, and he can look back on his contribution with pride and a great deal of satisfaction. We wish Kevin all the best for the future and thank him for his contribution.   

Ngā mihi,

Phil Holden
Trust Chairperson


Changes at the Trust, September 2020

The Board Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson are appointed by and from among the six elected Trustees on the Board immediately following the election held every three years in October.  Under Trust Standing Orders, on the anniversary of their appointment, the Board goes through the formal process of reappointing them to their roles for another 12 months.

The current Chairperson, Sid Kempton, and Deputy Chairperson, Wayne Regnault, have decided to step down and not put themselves forward for re-appointment after performing in these roles for the last three years.  They will remain on the Board as Trustees.

As a result the Board of Trustees now has a new Chairperson, Phil Holden, who became a Trustee at the last election in 2019, and a new Deputy Chairperson, Catherine Rossiter-Stead, who has been a Trustee since 2016.

The Trust’s General Manager, Kevin Murphy, has also announced he will be stepping down at the end of December, after being responsible for the Trust’s day to day management for the past five years.











An ordinary Trust Board meeting will be held on Thursday 17th December 2020, at the earlier time of 4pm in the Boardroom at 124 Main Street, Greytown.
