The departing chief executive of the Maori Language Commission says she's proud of what she achieved in her three years in the job.

Huhana Rokx resigned from Te Taura Whiri following an investigation and mediation process sparked by a letter from staff complaining about her management style.

Mrs Rokx told Waatea News she's leaving her successor with a strategy mapped out to meet the board's objectives.

Maori Language Commissioner Erima Henare says Huhana Rokx's performance was exemplary and her resignation was an honourable response to difficult circumstances faced by the chief executive, the staff and the board.
