McConnell says that O’Riley, who has been ATEED’s Chief Executive since May 2012, informed the ATEED board 12 months ago of his intention to leave in 2017 and has been working to that plan since.


The announcement is being made now to allow the process of recruiting O’Riley’s replacement to begin. He will remain in his role for the next seven months and manage the transition to his successor.


These include the opening of two new buildings at GridAKL, Auckland’s innovation precinct in Wynyard Quarter, and major sporting events including the World Masters Games 2017 and two British and Irish Lions rugby test matches.


McConnell says: “Brett has been instrumental in bringing together the important functions of tourism, events and economic development into an outstanding, progressive agency which Auckland and Auckland Council can be proud of.


“Auckland has changed immeasurably in the six years since amalgamation and we are proud of the prominent role that ATEED, on behalf of Auckland Council, has played in the region’s ongoing development”.


“On behalf of ATEED’s Board, I thank him for the passion and commitment he has demonstrated.”
