Massey University Deputy Vice-Chancellor Finance and Technology Cathy Magiannis has retired from her role at Massey for family and health reasons, after six years with the university in her senior leadership role.

Cathy joined Massey University as a member of the senior leadership team in June 2015 from the Ministry of Education where she was deputy secretary then chief executive of Education Payroll. Her experience spans the public and private sectors; before joining the ministry she was CEO of Gareth Morgan Investments, held senior roles at the Inland Revenue Department, and worked at Treasury and Ernst & Young.

Born in Greece and raised in Wellington, Cathy has a Bachelor of Commerce and Administration from Victoria University of Wellington, a Certificate of Banking from the Financial Services Institute of Australasia (of which she is an Affiliate Member), is a graduate of the Government’s Executive Leadership Programme, completed a Senior Executive Programme at the London Business School and is a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of New Zealand, the Institute of Directors and the New Zealand Institute of Management. She is also a director of Massey Ventures.

Cathy is a highly valued member of staff and a vital part of our senior leadership team and Massey community. Many of us are sad to see her go and she will be missed across the university.
