Human Resources Institute Chief Executive Beverley Main has announced she will be stepping down from her role after 15 years.
HRINZ National President Rachel Walker said Main’s resignation on medical grounds would be effective from this Friday.
“On behalf of the HRINZ board I would like to thank Beverley for the many years of dedicated service she has given to the organisation and wish her well,” Walker said.
Main joined what was then the Institute of Personnel Management of New Zealand in 1998. In her 15 years she has seen it grow from having 1200 members to over 4000 and expand its branches across the country.
“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,” she said.
Main, who was made a life member of HRINZ in 2006, plans to take a break but will look at part-time consultancy work in semi-retirement
The HRINZ Board will be reviewing the position before embarking on a recruitment campaign.
Brenda Tweedy, Education and Research Manager, has been appointed Acting Manager while the process is undertaken.
