Our leadership team

Leadership team


Our Executive Leadership Team (ELT) is the top leadership body here at the Treasury. It is responsible for the strategic leadership of the organisation, driving its performance, and the overall health of the organisation.


  • Strategic Priority Programme of Work – ELT members are the Senior Responsible Owners (SRO) of our strategic priority programmes of work, which are reported on through ELT. Some sit on or chair other Treasury governance groups, as part of their SRO responsibilities.
  • Directorates – Each Deputy Secretary has responsibility for their Directorate(s), with Directors reporting in to them. In the case of the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Economic Advisor, there is no reporting Director role. See Our structure for directorate reporting line details.
  • External Relationships – Each ELT member is a sponsor for a number of key external relationships, with responsibility for the overall health of the relationship.
  • Regional Engagement – Each ELT member has involvement in the Treasury's engagement with stakeholders throughout New Zealand's regions.
