NZICT gets new board of directors

New board appointed to drive tech growth

NZICT has announced the appointment of a new board of directors which includes representatives from the government and education sectors.

New NZICT board members include Director of ICT Matt Ritchie from New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, John Wadsworth, Dean of the Faculty of Business, from Manukau Institute of Technology, as well as Jo Healey, MD of Fujitsu New Zealand.

The new board members join those board members who were re-elected for a successive term. They are: Gen-i CEO Chris Quin, Microsoft MD Paul Muckleston, HP MD Keith Watson, IBM group marketing manager Michael Friedberg, Simpl chairman Bennett Medary, Fronde CEO Ian Clarke, Kinetics managing director Andrew Hunt and Swaytech director Bob Pinchin. "I am thrilled to be working with such a strong and dynamic Board,” says NZICT CEO Candace Kinser, “We are intent on accelerating the industry’s growth and economic prosperity for the country; it’s fantastic that we have input not only from the leaders of the business side of ICT, but also from government and education. We are well positioned to make positive impact across the sector.”

The group says membership is growing with new members coming from polytechs, government agencies, market research firms, startups and other companies.

“The growing interest in being part of NZICT is due to the recognition that “IT” means more than just software or hardware; it includes hi-tech manufacturing, education institutes, consulting firms and tech businesses of all shapes and sizes. Any company that uses, embeds, trains, advises on or produces technology as part of their livelihood is welcome as our member,” says Kinser.

This year’s Board Chair will be appointed at the first meeting of the new Board in early September.
