Kua hinga he totara i te wao nui a Tane.

A totara has fallen in the forest of Tane.

Tātaki Auckland Unlimited Board Chair Mark Franklin passed away on Saturday, 12 November 2022.

As well as guiding the Board of Directors at Tātaki Auckland Unlimited, Mark had been Managing Director of Stevenson Group, was previously founding Chief Executive of TZ1, and Chief Executive of Vector. He was also a former director of Kiwirail, WEL Networks, Ultrafast Broadband, and Auckland Chamber of Commerce. 

Mark’s passion for people, for a thriving Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, and for excellent and inclusive governance was an inspiration and powerful motivation to the Tātaki Auckland Unlimited leadership team. Our thoughts and aroha are with Mark’s whānau at this time.
