Former Nelson City Council chief executive Keith Marshall has been made interim head of the Wellington's regional economic development agency, Grow Wellington.

Mr Marshall has been acting chief executive of the business development organisation since June, pending the appointment of a permanent person in the role.

A former senior manager with the Canterbury Development Corporation Gerard Quinn was recently named Grow Wellington's new chief executive.

Grow Wellington is funded by the Wellington Regional Council, and consists of a network of advisers helping businesses in the Greater Wellington region grow.

Mr Marshall's 3 year tenure as Nelson City Council chief executive ended in April this year amid claims from seasoned councillors it had been "one of the most colourful in memory".

The man dubbed "controversial Keef" for his unorthodox style of leadership announced in January this year he was leaving the role because he wanted to free himself up for other opportunities. Mr Marshall said he would remain at Grow Wellington on a part-time basis until November.
