Auckland, May 22 NZPA - Watercare Services chief executive Mark Ford will head the agency set up to manage Auckland's transition to a super city structure.

Mr Ford's appointment was announced by Local Government Minister Rodney Hide at a press conference in Auckland today.

He will resign his positions at both Watercare and with the Auckland Regional Transport Authority to take up his position with the transition agency.

Also appointed to the agency were Queen's Counsel Miriam Dean, former Rodney District mayor John Law, former Maori Television chairman Wayne Walden and Bank of New Zealand chairman John Waller.

The announcement was set to be made on Monday but was delayed in the wake of fallout over the Government's appointment of Christine Rankin as a Families Commissioner.
