Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) Chief Executive Peter Mersi says he has appointed Lesley Haines as a Deputy Chief Executive on a short-term arrangement, to focus on the Overseas Investment Office.

It is expected that the arrangment, which starts on 20 June 2016, will be in place until the end of 2016.

Mr Mersi says Lesley Haines will help bring on additional staff as a result of recent fee increases to fund improvements for faster application screening by the OIO.

He says she has a wealth of public sector experience, most recently assisting in the development of a regulatory charter for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
