CallPlus CEO to carry on biffo

TELCO antagonist CallPlus has appointed a new CEO, leaving previous CEO Malcolm Dick to focus on new opportunities.

Martin Wylie - currently a director and shareholder of the company - has held similar roles at Ihug and Simpson Grierson.

“The company is growing and expanding and there was a need to rationalise the roles. I will now focus on the day-to-day operations,” he says.

Dick, who co-founded CallPlus with his partner Annette Presley, takes on the role of executive director and will concentrate on product innovations and new markets.

CallPlus is the third largest telco with over 100,000 customers in New Zealand and opened its subsidary CallPlus Australia last year - both companies fall under his jurisdiction.

Wylie says he has no radical plans to overhaul the company only to do more and better in the same areas.

“We represent a well-established service provider with a unique blend of entrepreneurial innovation and passion for providing New Zealand with a better deal.”

And is he ready to put on the boxing gloves and go to battle with Telecom NZ?

“It’s always a bit of a grind with Telecom. It’s not that we’re constantly in battle with them - we just see the world in different ways.”

Alongside its residential offerings the company has a focus on the business market through internet access, data and networking and Visibill, a bill analysis tool.
