Former Canterbury Earthquake Recovery chief executive Roger Sutton has a new role as an Anglican church trustee.

He has been appointed one of eight trustees on the Anglican Diocese of Christchurch Church Property Trust (CPT).

Sutton (above) resigned from his role at Cera in November, 2014, after a senior staff member laid a sexual harassment complaint against him.

A State Services Commission inquiry found Sutton's conduct was sexual harassment, but that he did not intend to cause offence. It recommended that he was given a final warning, but he resigned soon afterwards.

Trust chairwoman Bishop Victoria Matthews said Sutton was interviewed for the position and appointed after a unanimous vote.

"We are thrilled by what he is offering CPT in terms of talent and skill," she said.
