Hi All,

 

Today commences my last week at 2degrees after ~6.5 years, much of that time spent trying to do things differently, delivering a rock solid mobile and fixed network, working with passionate, enthusiastic, driven and focused professionals while challenging the market. It’s time to say haere rā & set forth on a new adventure.

 

As Churchill said, “Never waste a good crisis”, as NZ seeks to recover from #COVID19 I’m looking for new opportunities!

I love the 2degrees family, it’s been fantastic growing and learning with you. I love the creativity, passion, drive, innovation and customer centric approach we have for our customers. I love what our challenger brand and values represent and the impact we have made to the New Zealand market by delivering real competition. The geekzone community has been fantastic working along side us and helping us understand and consider decisions from multiple perspectives - thanks for your engagement and support!

On a personal level, I hope I’ve made a difference. I hope people, the place and our customers are better off for the work we’ve done together & I hope I’ve been a good 2degrees ancestor.

 

Thanks to the team, our customers and the business - It’s been an absolute pleasure!

 

Nick.

Your contribution to GZ has been above-and-beyond and seems to be a reflection of the passion and community culture that is encouraged at 2Degrees. People like yourself, and the focus on customer service in general, is why I have no interest in moving from 2Degrees anytime soon.

 

All the best in your new opportunity! Meanwhile, no more @NickMack plz fix 2d for us...

 

Hope we will still see you kicking around the forums though!

You really did mountains to lift the experience on 2D, Massive shoes to be filled.

Strange days indeed.
I’ve enjoyed working with you, and while I beat you out the door by a week, I’m sure this Friday will be a big day for yourself and others, and a sad day for 2degrees, though I really don’t think they understand that fully yet.
Thanks for all your help personally and on the forums!

Sad to hear Nick, but best wishes for whatever is next for you!

You've have been outstanding on the forums here, really going the extra mile - I would have to say your level of support and transparency here was the specific reason I've recommend many people change to 2Degrees over the last few years. Not that I will stop doing that...

 

Whoever is replacing you there is going to have to step up big time. 😎

I'm really sorry to see you leave 2D. You have been an amazing support across numerous levels and on Geekzone and I very much appreciate everything you have done.

 

2D are losing a real asset and your loss to them will be felt for years to come.

 

See you on the other side.

Sorry to hear you're leaving! I want to thank you for all your support you've done over the years. You've really set the bar high for anyone else who wants to fill your shoes. It's the little things - me complaining at 11pm when my internet drops due to network upgrades (while I was in the middle of a P2 incident at work) and not getting grumpy with me but instead telling me what happened or never showing frustration to a gamer who's ping went up by 2ms and instead going above and beyond to reduce it by 4ms instead.

 

2degrees are losing somebody quite important to their brand image I think but knowing you, you've already got your prodigy sorted. I wish you all the best with your new endeavors! And don't ever become a stranger.

Thanks for all your help while I was on 2degrees. Experience wouldn't have been the same without your ability to make change for the betterment of customer experience.
