New appointments at Victoria University Council Wellington business executive Neil Paviour-Smith has been elected chancellor of Victoria University of Wellington for 2018, succeeding Sir Neville Jordan, who recently announced his retirement from council. Neil was unanimously elected to lead Victoria’s governing body at a meeting of the council. He is the managing director of sharebroking and investment firm Forsyth Barr, a director of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CAANZ) and a former director of NZX. Neil is currently pro-chancellor, having been a member of the Victoria University Council since mid-2013, and chairs the Audit and Risk Committee. Born in Lower Hutt, Neil is a Victoria alumnus, who graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce and

Administration, after finishing his schooling at Naenae College. He was an inaugural recipient of a Sir Peter Blake Trust Leadership Award in 2005. Neville announced in October that he was retiring from council, of which he had been a member for four-and-a-half years, serving as chancellor for three of those years. The chancellor is the chair of the University Council and responsible for providing leadership to the Council in the development and implementation of its governance responsibilities, including in the area of strategic direction. They are also the ceremonial head of the university presiding over occasions such as graduation. Council member Dame Therese Walsh was unanimously elected to the position of pro-chancellor at the same meeting. The pro-chancellor

is the council’s deputy chair. Therese says it was a privilege to assume leadership of Victoria’s council. “I look forward to leading our Council and supporting management to deliver on the University’s aspirational strategic plan. “I am passionate about Wellington and believe Victoria can play a bigger role in, and with, the city. This will help the University continue to grow the quality of the student experience and enhance our reputation for world-class research.” Therese pays tribute to retiring the chancellor. “Sir Neville has been an outstanding chancellor of Victoria. “He has led many successful projects and significant reforms, including a restructuring of the Council two years ago, which has

resulted in a genuinely diverse governing body.” There will also be two new members at the Victoria council

table in 2018: Alan Judge will be replacing the retiring Roger Taylor and Isabella Lenihan-Ikin will be replacing Jacinta Gulasekharam.
