NZICT Group appoints new Board
Posted on 27-Jul-2010 16:29. | Tags Filed under: News.

The NZICT Group has a new board, elected following its 2nd Annual General Meeting at the end of last week.

New NZICT board members include Kordia CEO Geoff Hunt, Microsoft NZ Managing Director Paul Muckleston, Richard Laverty who is the Director of creative, services and information and communication technology at NZ Trade and Enterprise, Fronde CEO Ian Clarke and SwayTech Director Bob Pinchin.

The new board members join those board members who were re-elected to the board for a second term: Cisco NZ Country Manager Geoff Lawrie, IBM Asia Pacific senior manager Daryl French, Gen-i Australasia CEO Chris Quin, Simpl CEO Bennett Medary and Kinetics Group CEO Andrew Hunt.

The NZICT board also has two Independent Board Representatives: Telecommunications Carriers’ Forum CEO David Stone and Westpac General Manager of Customer and Technology Services David Boyes.

A new Chair will be appointed at the first meeting of the Board in August 2010.

"NZICT Board members will assist with the industry’s growth and economic development plans, both in terms of productivity improvements in the domestic economy and growth in export revenues," says NZICT CEO Brett O’Riley.

NZICT membership is nearing 100 New Zealand technology firms and related organisations with collective revenue of more than $10 billion and staff of around 10,000.

With exports of around $5 billion, the technology industry has become the third largest export segment market in New Zealand.

“We have an exciting range of programmes in prospect including the Digital Technology Symposium, Small Business Competition, Smartstreet Fibre Pilot, China ICT Trade Mission, and the Rutherford Hi-Tech Forum, the latter in conjunction with RWC 2011,” says O’Riley.

“We will continue to drive awareness of what technology can do for businesses and the community.”
