National Road Carriers has announced the secondment of Shafraz Khan and Pamela Bonney to the board – temporarily providing specialist strategic support until the Annual General Meeting and scheduled Board elections on 17 June.

John Baillie, NRC chair, said ensuring the right expertise sits on the board is critical to the ongoing success of the organisation.

“At a time where the organisation is undertaking significant business transformation, the current board vacancies provide the opportunity to bring governance expertise in key strategic areas onto the board,” he said.

Khan is a partner at Fortune Manning – NRC’s long-standing law firm of record. A commercial and civil litigation specialist, he is one of a small number of specialist transport lawyers in New Zealand and is a highly sought-after adviser to both the transport and marine sector.

Bonney joins following a career working with blue-chip and listed companies in New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and United States – and as a current trustee of the Motu Foundation.

She has expertise across a range of business sectors including insurance, dairy, technology and transport.

“NRC is an organisation made up of operators in the largest cities to the smallest rural towns across New Zealand. Regardless of the size of their operation, members are committed to playing their part to ensure New Zealand’s transport industry is tackling the big issues such as roading infrastructure and carbon emissions,” said Baillie.

“Research and innovation are key, as is attracting great talent across all levels.”
