RESIGNATION CREATES VACANCY ON ASSOCIATION BOARD
August 2012 - An unexpected resignation has left a vacancy on the newly-elected Franchise Association board
Stephen Mansfield has resigned from the board of the Franchise Association just one month after the recent elections. The master franchisee for Quest Serviced Apartments was co-opted to the Board during the 2010/11 term and was then elected in 2011/12. He served as Vice-Chairman for that year, being succeeded in July by Ian Robertson of New Zealand Post.
In an email to FANZ members, chairman David Foster thanked Stephen for ‘his commitment to the Board and his passionate enthusiasm for systems and planning in particular.’
Mr Mansfield’s resignation, which the chairman says is due to other business and private priorities, leaves a vacancy on the seven-man board. The Association has not yet announced whether the vacancy will be filled at all or, if it is filled, whether it will be through co-opting another member or going back to the results of last month’s election and appoint the next-placed person. The three nominees who were not elected were:
- Sean Dwyer, ANZ National Bank (banker)
- Warren Sare, BNZ (banker)
- Laurel McCulloch, Link Business (broker)
