Otago Community Trust is pleased to announce that South Otago based Bridget Tweed has been appointed as a new trustee to the Trust.

Trustees who serve on the Otago Community Trust are appointed by the Associate Minister of Finance. They are selected for their professional or community-based experience and must live within the Trust's region.

Mrs Tweed will start in her new term from 1 July, the appointment is for an initial term of four years ending on 31 May 2023.

Otago Community Trust chair Ross McRobie welcomed the new appointment.

Bridget’s appointment comes after a small absence of a South Otago based representative on the Trust, with our previous South Otago trustee Stephen Kornyei retiring in July of last year, McRobie said.

"We are delighted to have Bridget on board, and we look forward to her contribution. As a Trust representing Otago we feel it is vitally important to ensure we have balanced representation from all areas of our region".

Originally from Southland, Mrs Tweed is currently the Otago Area Manager for FMG based in Balclutha and is the chair of Clutha Development.

The Trust also received confirmation that current chair Ross McRobie has been appointed for a further year as a trustee of Otago Community Trust and will remain as the Trust chair for this duration.

Otago Community Trust, chief executive Barbara Bridger said the Trust looks forward to the skills and knowledge Bridget will bring, and the contribution she will make.

"We are equally pleased to have Ross reappointed for a further year and the continuity that ensures for our board and team," Bridger said.
