Chris Mackay puts his money on Codeblue

F
ormer Computerland CEO Chris Mackay has returned to the industry, becoming a board member and equal majority shareholder of IT services company Codeblue.

Mackay worked at Computerland for 20 years and became CEO in 2000. He left the company after it was purchased by Telecom in 2005.

Mackay says he brings his vast experience in the industry, the understanding to deliver first-class services and an understanding of the challenges of technology.

“I look forward to helping Codeblue bring a better solution to the marketplace and expanding its local presence. I’m excited by the new opportunities and future for Codeblue.”

After leaving Computerland Mackay says he took a small break from the industry, but then worked in IT project management.

“I’ve spent the past six months travelling around Europe, so it’s great to come back and work for an evolving local company.”

He will not be based in the office, but will offer guidance and expertise to the company.

Mackay’s investment in Codeblue follows the appointment of another former Computerland employee, Ian Funnell, as general manager in April.

Codeblue was founded in 2004 by former local Toshiba head Ken Davis, who is now executive director. The company has offices in Auckland and Hamilton with around 20 staff.
