Fraser, Gilbert and Sullivan

It's quite remarkable how easy it is to be a director of a large company. Decision making really is very simple. When faced with the accusation that you are paying two CEO's simultaneously you simply decide to continue on without one. You divide the CEO's duties between two existing senior executives and have them report to the Board once each week. Aha!! you say to your detractors. We are NOT paying two CEO.s. Problem solved, see?

The state-owned broadcaster was expected to appoint a temporary replacement this week allowing Mr Fraser to step down immediately.

However TVNZ says in the interim, the chief executive's duties will be shared between two senior managers who will report to the board once a week.



That is, until some miserable bugger asks 'Well what were those two senior execs doing before? Can't have been much if they can just slip in and take over the duties. Why the hell did you need a flash CEO in the first place?

TVNZ doesn't need a charter. All it has to do is put it's Board of Directors on primetime each night and we'll have all the locally produced drama and comedy you could ever want.
