Former National MP Mike Sabin has picked up a job as the head of a luxury resort in Northland.
Mr Sabin has been appointed chief executive of Peppers Carrington Estate, a 1000ha five-star resort on the Karikari Peninsula.
The former MP for Northland will drive plans to redevelop the property into the country's largest five-star resort.
Chinese real-estate giant Shanghai CRED purchased the business from US businessman Paul Kelly for $28.7 million in 2013, and planned to market it to wealthy Chinese tourists.

Mr Sabin resigned as Northland's MP in early February, following reports he was being investigated by police. His resignation forced a byelection, which National lost to New Zealand First's Winston Peters.
