RNZRSA congratulates the new Chief of Defence Force Rhys Jones
The Royal New Zealand Returned and Services' Association (RNZRSA) congratulates Major General Rhys Jones on his appointment as the new Chief of Defence Force.
"In these challenging times strong leadership and effective decision-making are crucial for any new chief executive and Major General Jones has a proven track record of delivery in both these areas," says National President Don McIver.
"Our thanks to the outgoing Chief of Defence Force Jerry Mateparae for his commitment to the veterans of New Zealand. We will always remember General Mateparae's emphatic and landmark lifetime commitment to care for veterans and their families at the time of Tribute08."
"We look forward to working with Major General Jones and enhancing the good relationship that already exists between our two organisations."
