Sir John Anderson, a former bank manager and prominent business leader, died of a severe disease at the age of 73.
The former CEO of ANZ National Bank died at Wellington's home at night.
He served as an executive director and director of Southpac, which lasted until 2005 in 2005 as the National Bank and ANZ in 2003.
Anderson was commander of the Order of the British Empire, and in 1995 he received New Year's awards.
Cafman Tript's consultant Barr Brown said about Anderson: "True love for Sir John, for his great contribution to Sir John's business and New Zealand business, and especially to the financial community, is a true sign."
"He is not the one who puts his heart on a jacket but he is absolutely private, but we know that he is proud of New Zealand and his people."
Anderson, the executive director of the National Bank, was in good health at the 1987 crisis.
"He is not afraid to go against the market," Brown said.
In 1995 Anderson was appointed chairman of the New Zealand cricket.
He also served in NZX's board of directors in December last year.
Anderson is heading news organization with APN News & Media.
She was born in Wellington and went to the College of Christ and the Wellington University.
There is plenty of future
