NZICT has announced the appointment of two new Board members - CEO of Gen-i Australasia Chris Quin and Country Manager of Dell NZ Mike Hill.
Richard King stood down from the Board late last year, while David Stone will remain on the Board as an independent member in his role as Telecommunications Carriers’ Forum CEO.
NZICT Chair Geoff Lawrie said that it was gratifying to have such a strong interest from a range of high caliber candidates for a position on the Board. “I offer the Board’s congratulations and welcome to both Chris and Mike, and believe they will do an excellent job of representing the interests of members,” said Lawrie.
Chris Quin, CEO Gen-i Australasia, said; “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining the NZICT Board and hope to bring a fresh perspective on how we can enhance the provision of ICT in New Zealand. “Gen-i’s partnerships with our 3,000 clients across New Zealand and Australia give me strong insights into how the ICT sector can help businesses achieve their goals. I am committed to the success of ICT in New Zealand and the role it plays as a facilitator of business and national economic success.”
As a member of the NZICT Board, Dell NZ Country Manager Mike Hill said he will aim to promote issues such as ICT in schools and ICT’s role in protecting the environment. “I look forward to working and collaborating with the other Board members who I hugely respect and being part of building the future of ICT in New Zealand,” said Hill.
