Former Air New Zealand boss Rob Fyfe has added another directorship, joining the board of NZX-listed jeweller Michael Hill International.

While he already sits on the board of merino clothing company Icebreaker and crown entity Antarctica New Zealand, he's also sniffing around for a fulltime gig with a local company.

Fyfe, who took a year's sabbatical after leaving the airline at the end of 2012, has previously admitted to having itchy feet.

"I'm really interested in businesses that have a strong New Zealand identity that have the potential to perform on the global stage, and to perform at world-class level," he said.

"The likes of Icebreaker and Michael Hill tick those boxes, and that's what drew me to those organisations."

Fyfe, who was about to leave on a trip to Europe, said he intended to find a fulltime executive position around April or May.

"I've got a few ideas and discussions and so on that people have initiated with me," he said.

"I've said to everyone, just wait till I'm back in February and I'll have a closer look then."

He said there would have to be a strong local connection to whichever business he got involved with. "My future is in New Zealand," he said.

"I want to pick and identify businesses that I can be passionate about, but also I think New Zealanders can be passionate about."
