Group Chief Financial Officer Matthew Walker

Group Chief Financial Officer Matthew Walker has resigned and will leave Auckland Council at Easter to take up the role of General Manager: Corporate Support at the NZ Transport Agency in Wellington. In his new role, Mr Walker will be responsible for a similar portfolio to his current one.

Chief Executive Stephen Town says, “Matthew is highly respected for the work he is leading at Auckland Council and across the council whānau and will be greatly missed. I’d like to personally thank Matthew for his hard work, strong leadership and good humour.”

Matthew has been with the council for seven years through a period of significant growth and change. He has been responsible for some significant achievements, such as the first green bonds being issued by a New Zealand organisation and the allocation of $26 billion in capital expenditure in the council's 10-year Budget 2018-2028.

Auckland Council will appoint an Acting Group Chief Financial Officer while it recruits for the permanent position, which will be announced in due course.
