WELLINGTON: Air New Zealand Ltd’s Chief Executive Christopher Luxon is stepping down in September after seven years in the role, as one of the nation’s most prominent businessmen considers a career in politics among his options. “I would like to think more about how I can best use my skills, abilities and experience to make a further contribution to the success of New Zealand whether that be through corporate life, politics, or a not-for-profit” role, Luxon, 48, said in a statement on Wednesday. He was roped in by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern last year to lead an advisory council focused on improving business confidence and to help with reforming a slowing economy. Local media reports have said Luxon could consider a political career with the opposition National Party although he has dismissed these claims. (REUTERS)
