In an announcement made today, the Green Party expressed its gratitude for Mr Norman’s service.
“He transformed our internal structure at the Greens, helping to create a formidable political machine,” Green Party Co-leader James Shaw said.
“Every day I’m aware of the ground that he has laid,” he said.
“Russel will be enormously missed, and we wish him all the best for his new job at Greenpeace.”
Mr Norman said he was looking for a new challenge after he had stepped down as Green Party co-leader to spend more time with his family.
He said the role at Greenpeace “meets the criteria”.
Dr Norman’s departure means Marama Davidson from Manurewa will become the Green Party’s 14th MP.
He’ll take up the Greenpeace position in November
