Barry replaced Deryck Shaw, who resigned in October 2018 after an independent review found the executive committee adopted a ‘hands-off approach’ to governance following complaints by the women’s national team about their coach.
Wood, the new NZ Football boss, said in a statement on Tuesday that “we have gone through and are continuing to go through a period of transition.
“Both ExCo and the senior management team are committed to delivering the recommendations of the independent review.”
Wood was acting Vice President and was last month elected as the Oceania confederation’s member to the FIFA Council, which sets the world governing body’s strategic direction. NZF was engulfed in controversy last year with the Football Ferns’ women’s team complaining about the environment created by coach Andreas Heraf, who eventually resigned.
Heraf was also NZF’s national technical director. Chief Executive Andy Martin also left the organisation and still yet to be replaced.
