Human Resources Institute of NZ CEO
resigns

For immediate release

Human
Resources Institute chief executive Beverley Main is to step
down from the position she has held for the last 15
years.

Ms Main and HRINZ National President Rachel Walker
announced yesterday that Ms Main’s resignation on medical
grounds would be effective from this Friday, September 13.
She plans to take a break but will look at part-time
consultancy work in semi-retirement.

The HRINZ Board will
take the opportunity to review the position before embarking
on a recruitment campaign, Ms Walker said.  Brenda Tweedy,
Education and Research Manager, has been appointed Acting
Manager while the process is undertaken.

“On behalf of
the HRINZ board I would like to thank Beverley for the many
years of dedicated service she has given to the organization
and wish her well,” she said.

Ms Main, who had worked in
not-for-profit organisations and had founded a network for
self-employed women, joined what was then the Institute of
Personnel Management of New Zealand in 1998 when it was at a
low ebb and is proud of the way it has achieved financial
and organisational stability.

During her 15 years
membership has grown from 1200 members to over 4000,
Institute branches have grown from seven to 16 and
membership has grown on average 10 percent a year with an
enviable retention rate of 94 percent. HRINZ has circa 55
percent of the market share of individual HR professionals,
the highest rate in the world.

HRINZ has become a highly
respected professional association which is working with a
new strategic plan and a reduced Board that is driving
change and strong governance.

Ms Main said when she was
appointed it was to lead and grow the business. Her
initially limited experience in human resources was not seen
as an inhibiting factor but more of an advantage.

“I
could be objective and stand aside to decide on what the
business needed.”

“I have been fortunate to work with
some amazing people among our volunteers all over the
country at national and local level and they have worked
well with our paid staff who are such a great team.”

In
her last months as CEO Ms Main organised and oversaw the
industry’s annual conference in Wellington which was
marked by the contribution of American Professor Dave Ulrich
as a keynote speaker, regarded as the world’s leading
expert in the field of people management and
leadership.

Ms Main was made a life member of HRINZ in
2006.

ENDS
