Judith Collins has crushed two more ACC Board members as her purge of ACC continues:
A cleanout of the ACC board will continue with two more directors to be released from the top of the troubled state insurer.
Chairman John Judge was effectively shown the door yesterday after political pressure over the Bronwyn Pullar case.
The Dominion Post has learnt that his deputy, John McCliskie, and another director, Rob Campbell, will also be replaced.
ACC Minister Judith Collins confirmed last night that the terms of five board members expired in March, and three would not be renewed.
“I think what you’ll see is a change in direction. The fact is, we have board members whose terms have expired and I’m taking the opportunity to bring in people who I believe will be able to help change the direction,” Ms Collins said.
New appointments to the board were pending approval from the responsible Cabinet committee. Government enforcer and existing director Paula Rebstock would act as chairwoman until a permanent appointment was made.
