Tim Miles to run PGG Wrightson

By Antonios Karantze, in , posted: 17-Dec-2007 20:32

This news seems to have snuck out today. After a year or so of non-executive 'consultancy', Mr Miles is the new head of PGG Wrightson....

In a strange turn of 6 degrees, I work for a company whose CEO used to run Wrightson's and had an agreement with Vodafone, only now doesn't. And his former employer has hired the ex-Vodafone boss....

NZ is very small sometimes....

I'm a fan of technology, and what it can do for people and business... and I enjoy bringing new things to market and seeing them grow. Enjoy the blog, take the time to think about what I write - it's not technology heavy, and is my reflection on life and the people around me.
