Infratil's Morrison steps down to fight leukaemia
Lloyd Morrison, one of New Zealand's leading businessmen, is to step down from his role as Chief Executive of Infratil, and will take leave from his positions as a director of Auckland International Airport and TrustPower, after being diagnosed with a form of leukaemia. In a statement to the NZ stock exchange, Infratil Chairman David Newman said that Morrison had already started treatment for the illness. "It is important for Lloyd to focus on his health and family. Infratil is very well placed with the strength of its businesses and the depth in the management team. Our thoughts are with Lloyd and his family and I am sure he will fight this illness with the same determination and passion he has shown in the business," Newman said. Infratil's Chief Operating Officer Marko Bogoievski was appointed as Chief Executive for the period of Morrison's medical leave.
