A new chief executive has been appointed at Ngāi Tahu Holdings.
Mike Pohio, previously a board member of the iwi corporation, has been promoted to the top job and will start as chief executive next month.
The previous chief executive Mike Sang, announced in August he was stepping down after seven years.
Mr Sang will remain with Ngāi Tahu Holdings until the middle of March to support a smooth handover.
Mr Pohio said it was a privilege and an honour to work for his iwi and to tackle a key role.
