Ex Computerworld Editor Sarah Putt joins IITP team
Posted on 1-Jul-2013 08:32 | Tags Filed under: News



The Institute of IT Professionals, New Zealand’s largest IT representative body, today announced that ex-Computerworld Editor Sarah Putt had joined the Institute’s team from today as Communications and Policy Lead to help drive communication, publications and policy research for the Institute.

The Institute of IT Professionals is the professional body for those working in the Information Technology industry. With thousands of members nationwide, it is the largest IT representative body in New Zealand.

IITP chief executive Paul Matthews said today that the new role was focused on strengthening the IT Profession’s communications and voice, both internally and with external stakeholders.

“Sarah Putt is well known to those in IT and has a great grasp of the issues that are important to IT Professionals,” Matthews said today. “Expanding our team in this space will ensure the Institute continues to support and drive thought leadership within the IT Profession.”

As part of the new role, Putt will become Editor of the Institute’s popular Newsline ePublication. Newsline is read by thousands of IT professionals each week and provides topical news, views and interviews with and by IT experts, leaders and others of interest to IT Professionals. “The publication will be expanded to almost daily commentary with a larger online presence, however will continue to focus on opinion and expert comment rather than just news”, Matthews said today.

Anyone can receive the free Newsline publication via email by signing up at www.iitp.org.nz/subscribe

“The new role also includes other activities to ensure the profession’s voice is heard throughout the IT industry, Government, academia and the public at large”, Matthews said. “The Institute will announce further plans over the next few months.”

“The Institute has a responsibility to drive thought leadership and inform members, but does not exist to compete or replicate the excellent news publications that report on the IT news of the day. Newsline doesn’t compete with these and we continue to support and work with all publications in this space. This will not change in the slightest,” Matthews said.

Putt finished as Editor of Computerworld following Fairfax Business Media’s recent decision to discontinue publishing the magazine and starts with the Institute today.
