Port Otago Chair David Faulkner said, “Jane will bring to the Port Otago Board extensive experience with a number of diverse and significant New Zealand Companies, along with other entities that have strong connections to the public sector.”
Mrs Taylor is a professional director based in Queenstown. She is a qualified barrister and accountant, and was the Otago Daily Times Business Leader of the Year in 2016.
ORC owns 100 percent of Port Otago, having purchased the company in 1989.
