Abstract: Shaun Cawood was one of the industry’s quiet achievers, spending most of his working life in the southern South Island. He was a leader driven to improve himself and the organisations he worked for, backed by a practical ability to get to the nub of what was important, identify necessary changes and mobilise those around him to get it done. He will be remembered by his colleagues, not just for the difference he made in the organisations he worked in, but for the contribution he made to their working lives. Formative years Shaun grew up in Tokoroa. He was most at home in the outdoors – hunting, tramping, surfing, diving and snorkelling – and was a better-than-average sportsman and enjoyed stoking his competitive drive through rugby, basketball and volleyball. He went to school at Forest View High.
