Join us at Forsyth Barr’s new office to hear from guest speaker Sir Eion Edgar. This is an opportunity to hear from one of New Zealand’s most respected businessmen, philanthropists and influential community-focussed leaders. Sir Eion and Forsyth Barr’s local Investment Advisers look forward to meeting you at this Business After Five event for drinks and nibbles.
Eion recently retired as Chairman of Forsyth Barr after 20 years in the role. He is formerly Chancellor of the University of Otago, Chairman of the New Zealand Stock Exchange and President of the New Zealand Olympic Committee. He was also formerly a Director of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, the Accident Compensation Commission, Mt Cook Alpine Salmon, and Vero Insurance New Zealand Limited.
