Christchurch Airport chief executive Jim Boult has been named as chairman of City Care.

City Care is one of the Christchurch City Council's trading companies administered by Christchurch City Holdings Ltd. It maintains roads, sewers, water, parks and other civic amenities.

It has come in for criticism this year for a disappointing financial result which saw profits plummet from $16.5 million to $2.8m.

Christchurch City Holdings chairman Bruce Irvine today announced the appointment of Boult as the new City Care chairman.

Boult replaces Tony King, who was appointed to the City Care board in 2003 and has been chairman since 2008.

King said in July that he had accepted the role of chief operating officer with Solid Energy and would be unable to continue as City Care chairman until the expected end of his term in October next year.

He will remain on the City Care board until that time.

Boult will complete his contract as chief executive of Christchurch Airport at the end of the year.

He ruled out rumours that he may succeed Tony Marryatt as city council chief executive.

Boult started as airport chief executive in January 2009 and was a director from November 2003 to June 2009.

He is a former director and deputy chairman of the New Zealand Tourism Board.
