- Higher Education · Invercargill

In­ver­cargill: The South­ern In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (SIT) is on the look­out for a new chief ex­ec­u­tive.

Penny Sim­monds, who held the po­si­tion for the past 23 years, was con­firmed as the new MP for In­ver­cargill last week, leav­ing her role at the polytech va­cant.

SIT board chair­woman Ali­son Broad said yes­ter­day the polytech had be­gun the re­cruit­ment process.

The ap­point­ment would take ef­fect some time in 2021, so the board had enough time to con­sider the best per­son for the job, she said.

Ma­ree How­den has been act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive since Ms Sim­monds went on leave in June.
