    Adrienne Young-Cooper

    Auckland Transport

    Adrienne Young-Cooper has a background in strategic city planning and has been an
    independent director on resource, transport, housing and urban development companies for
    almost 20 years. Adrienne’s driving passion as a professional director is to support the creation
    of sustainable, beautiful, and diverse communities that are well connected by transport networks
    and services. It is her view that transport investment must support and incentivise sustainable
    urban development and position New Zealand for a net zero carbon future.

    In Adrienne’s previous governance roles at Auckland Regional Transport Network Limited and
    Auckland Regional Transport Authority (which both precede Auckland Transport) Waka Kotahi
    New Zealand Transport Agency, she has overseen the delivery of major capital projects including
    Britomart Rail Station, electrification and double tracking of the Auckland commuter rail system,
    the Northern Busway and the Waterview tunnel.

    Adrienne holds a Master of Science from Lincoln University and the University of Canterbury and
    is a Chartered Fellow of the Institute of Directors.
