Experienced director Dr Keith Turner has been named as chairman of a new five-person board to govern Team New Zealand.

Former chairman Gary Paykel helped assemble the new board before stepping down.

The board's first task will be to review the protocol for the next America's Cup to see whether a Team New Zealand challenge is viable.

"Should the Board determine that a challenge is credible, I expect the Government will then decide whether to invest in a challenge and if so, seek a further appointment to the board," said Dr Turner.

Cup holders Oracle and challenger of record Hamilton Island Yacht Club are expected to release the protocol for the next cup soon.

Turner is joined on the board by Warehouse founder Sir Stephen Tindall, Tina Symmans, Greg Horton and Bob Field.

Grant Dalton is the CEO.

Dr Turner is an experienced professional director on both sides of the Tasman with extensive experience in the energy sector.

He is currently the chairman of Fisher & Paykel Appliances Limited, deputy chairman of Auckland International Airport, and a director of Chorus.
