Governance NZ

In remembrance: Chris Luoni FCIS FGNZ

Message from the Chief Executive

It is with great sadness, that today we learned of the passing of Chris Luoni, Past President and Chair of Governance New Zealand.

Following a brave fight against cancer, and surrounded by family, Chris is now at peace.

Many of you will have known Chris as someone generous of his time and full of innovative ideas. Chris served on the Governance New Zealand Board from 2013, and held the positions of Vice President, President and Immediate Past President. A key achievement was leading the organisation through our rebrand and name change in 2014. In 2018, Chris went on to represent Governance New Zealand on the international stage as CGI Council Representative. Chris’ dedication to ensuring the effective governance of our organisation and his ability to always keep the best interests of the membership to the fore has been nothing short of exemplary. His contribution, support and camaraderie will be greatly missed by staff, fellow Board members and the wider membership.

Please join with me in taking a moment to remember Chris.

Linda Noble
Chief Executive
