HG’s Chair becomes Dame Jo

We’re thrilled to announce that the Chair of our Board, Jo Brosnahan, has become a Dame Companion of the NZ Order of Merit following the announcement in the King’s Birthday Coronation and Honours list on Sunday 5 June 2023. The honour was bestowed on Dame Jo for her services to governance and business.

We’re privileged to have had Dame Jo’s leadership as we navigated the unchartered waters of COVID-19 less than a year after she became our Chair in June 2019 and her subsequent steadfast focus on HG’s people and clients was inspirational and continues to this day. In fact, as the founder of Leadership New Zealand, Dame Jo’s whole ethos is ‘people first’ – a perfect alignment with our values and priority focus.

Right from the start, Dame Jo has been absolutely determined to see HG succeed, and she continually challenges us to do that in a positive way.  Next Generation HG is a good example of that, and she keeps us focussed on our vision and true to our purpose.

With Dame Jo at the helm, we’re looking forward to achieving our vision of becoming the #1 urban development partner in Aotearoa New Zealand, making life better for people across the country.

Congratulations Dame Jo. Thanks for everything.
