AUCKLAND.- Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki announces the appointment of Tom Irvine to the position of Deputy Director.

The position will have responsibility for ensuring the operational needs of Auckland Art Gallery are met in respect to finance, HR, security, capital projects, maintenance and systems improvement.

‘Tom brings to the Gallery a wealth of corporate, community and commercial expertise and experience. Moreover he is a respected leader in Tāmaki Makaurau with an impressive track record of delivering on strategic objectives. I am excited by the potential of what we will achieve together, side by side,’ says Auckland Art Gallery Director, Kirsten Lacy.

‘Tom brings a fresh perspective and considerable mana to the Gallery’s leadership team. His contribution to Auckland Art Gallery’s operational management will undoubtably create long-standing impact.

‘After being recently involved in supporting the Gallery in its framework surrounding Māori outcomes, I’m thrilled to take on a role to further the vision and values of Toi o Tāmaki,’ says Irvine.

As Chief Operating Officer for Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei, Irvine worked with the tribal development arm to support social, cultural and environmental development projects, as well as promote community and stakeholder relationships.
