Mega Limited Announces new CEO
Posted on 4-Aug-2014 20:05. | Tags Filed under: News.



The directors of Mega Ltd, an end-to-end encrypted cloud storage company, have announced the appointment of Graham Gaylard as CEO to lead the company through its next global growth phase.

Mr Gaylard is a senior technology CEO, with considerable experience in new ventures and start-ups. His entrepreneurial initiatives date back to 1995 when he established Wave Internet, which was sold five years later. Since then he has assisted with a number of technology start-ups, accessing venture capital both in New Zealand and in Silicon Valley.

Mr Gaylard is an award-winning Computer Science and MBA graduate from Waikato University, and has been based in Hamilton for over 20 years running technology businesses. He established web applications and hosting company NetValue in Hamilton in 2003, which now employs 45 people. Mr Gaylard is also currently a Director of Real Time Genomics and the Chair of Soda Inc. His new role sees him based at Mega’s Auckland offices at the BDO Tower, 120 Albert St, Auckland.

Mr Gaylard said he was looking forward to the challenge of leading Mega through an exciting new growth period, which would be focused on secure online communication and collaboration.

“Our unique end-to-end-encrypted services provide businesses and consumers with secure cloud storage and communication capability at highly competitive rates,” he said.

“Our business model is based on providing free storage of up to 50 GB, with a premium service for greater storage on a monthly, recurring revenue basis.

“This capability provides businesses and consumers with real-time collaborative access to secure data regardless of where in the world they are located,” Mr Gaylard said.

Mega Directors also announced that former Acting CEO, Stephen Hall, would remain in the business to focus on the anticipated listing and merger with TRS.
