Appointment of Phil Robinson as Marlborough Lines Board Chair

The Marlborough Lines Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Phil Robinson as Board Chair, effective from 24 March 2021. Phil succeeds David Dew who retired from the Board on 23 March 2021, after 15 years as Chair, and prior to that five years as a Director.
Mr Dew said, “It has been my pleasure to serve as Chairman of the Board and to play a part in the Company’s growth over the last 20 years to become the successful business it is today, delivering a safe and reliable electricity supply, adding value and providing increased long-term benefits to Marlborough’s electricity consumers.
I have appreciated the strong support of the Marlborough Electric Power Trust, my fellow Directors and the Marlborough Lines team. I congratulate Phil Robinson on his appointment as Chair and I leave with confidence that the Company is in good hands to continue its success story into the future.”
The Board extends its sincere appreciation to David for his significant contribution to the company during his 20-year tenure. Over that time the company has achieved considerable growth.
As a long-standing Chair and Board member, David has played a pivotal role in the direction of the Company and the successes it has achieved. We are thankful for his service and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
Incoming Chair, Phil Robinson, joined the MLL Board as a Director in 2015. Phil is well known in Marlborough as Managing Director of Robinson Construction. He has also been involved in business interests that include several construction and development related companies. Phil has a strong connection to the Marlborough region and commitment to the economic growth of Marlborough and the role that Marlborough Lines plays in positively influencing the region’s success.

Mr Robinson said, “I’m excited about the opportunity to work with the Trust and my fellow Directors to continue to strengthen our governance culture and take Marlborough Lines forward as an industry leader.

The Company is in good shape with a strong balance sheet, quality assets, an effective Board and a capable, innovative and committed team well-placed to take it into the future. Our focus is on embracing challenges and opportunities to increase shareholder value and increasing operational efficiencies so we can keep prices as low as possible for our electricity consumers.
