Women in Technology general manager Cheryl Horo has left the organisation, saying she’s open to another IT-related role or a different venture altogether.
After four years at WIT and spending the previous four as national office manager for the Computer Society, Horo felt the time was right for change.
“I want to do something totally different. It could be in the industry if there was the right opportunity because I love the industry.”
Founder and director Carol Lee Andersen will return to a more active role in WIT, while Wellington-based staff member Kirsty Harkins will cover more customer service management, Horo says.
Andersen confirms she will return to a full working week with the organisation, after scaling back to 15 or 20 hours a week after the birth of her twins more than a year ago.
She says WIT is assessing how best to fill Horo’s role, with her departure an opportunity to weigh up new initiatives and to involve people interested in running them.
Horo will remain a member of the organisation’s advisory board. She has also worked in the customer service industry for about 10 years.
