New Momentum Waikato chief executive is senior staffer from Hamilton City Council

23 January 2018

The community organisation behind the proposal for a new Waikato theatre has a new chief executive.

Kelvyn Eglinton, who currently works for Hamilton City Council, has been chosen to lead Momentum Waikato Community Foundation.

He picks up from founding chief executive Cheryl Reynolds, who left after four years to establish a new social enterprise.

The role appealed to Eglinton because of his background in working across communities and within corporate organisations, he said in a statement.
