Dr Nicki Crauford FIPENZ, former Deputy Chief Executive of IPENZ, has been appointed Chair of the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS) Board.

The Minister of Science and Innovation, the Hon. Steven Joyce, announced the appointment in June, alongside appointments and reappointments to seven Crown Research Institutes (CRIs), which conduct scientific research in New Zealand.

Dr Crauford, who was Deputy Chief Executive at IPENZ from 2011 to 2014, took up her new role on 1 July.

Mr Joyce said Dr Crauford, and the other directors appointed to CRI Boards, “are all experts in their field, and I would like to thank them for agreeing to serve on the Boards”.
