He's been called "Mr Fix-It", the "Super Minister," even "Dildo Baggins".
Senior National MP Steven Joyce is hanging up his towel, retiring from politics.
Before coming to Parliament, Mr Joyce had a successful business career.
At age 21, he started his first radio station, Energy FM, in his home town of New Plymouth.
Over the next 17 years, he - and his two business partners - built up RadioWorks, helping develop music brands The Edge and The Rock.
With Mr Joyce at the helm, RadioWorks expanded to 22 local radio stations and four national radio networks with 650 staff.
In 2000, the company was purchased by Canadian company Canwest. Mr Joyce retired as managing director the following year.
Mr Joyce then entered politics, spearheading a major review of National's disastrous 2002 election result.
In 2008, he chaired National's election campaign, entered Parliament as a list MP and was immediately appointed a Cabinet minister.
He went on to manage five elections for the party.
During his time in government, he held the Transport, Associate Finance, Economic Development, Science and Innovation, Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment portfolios.
He then became Finance Minister in 2016 after John Key stepped down as Prime Minister, taking over from Bill English who moved into the top spot.
Mr Joyce discovered world-wide fame after being hit by a dildo thrown at him at Waitangi in 2016. At the time Mr Joyce posted a tweet saying, "Someone send the gif over to John Oliver so we can get it over with"
During the 2017 election Mr Joyce came under fire for accusing Labour of having an $11.7 billion "fiscal hole" in their budget plan.
The overwhelming majority of economists said his numbers were wrong, though one agreed with him that it would be a challenge for Labour to govern within its budget.
He recently ran for the position of National party leader after Bill English resigned, but was unsuccessful.
Hi all. Today I have announced my retirement from Parliament. I have had a wonderful time in this place over nearly ten years, including nine as a Minister. My plan is to return to commercial life and to focus on being a good Dad for Tommy and Amelia.— Steven Joyce (@stevenljoyce) March 6, 2018
Will be very sad to see @stevenljoyce leave Parliament - his instincts, clearheadedness and focus have been crucial to National’s direction and stability.— Jenna Raeburn (@JennaRaeburn) March 6, 2018
I reckon we won’t quite know what we’ve got til it’s gone... and do NOT envy whoever fills his shoes in the 2020 campaign https://t.co/bK3Enmsaw3
