Motu welcomes Howard Fancy as Director
Howard Fancy, an experienced public sector chief executive, is Motu’s new Director.
Howard comes to Motu with an extensive background in leadership and public policy, including senior roles in the Treasury, Chief Executive Officer for the then Ministry of Commerce, Chief Executive Officer for the Ministry of Education, and Acting Chief Executive for the Ministry for the Environment. He has also held directorships at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the Institute of Policy Studies, and the New Zealand Trade Development Board. He also runs his own independent consulting firm.
Suzi Kerr hands over the reins to Howard after almost eleven years as Director, since the organisation’s inception in 1998 when it was a tiny operation in Island Bay. Suzi plans to return to Motu as a senior fellow after a one-year visiting professorship at Stanford University. Motu wishes Suzi well and looks forward to her return, and warmly welcomes Howard to the Motu team.
