“The smart use of information is becoming increasingly important in this new digital age and David’s expertise will allow us to help New Zealand organisations and businesses create value from their information and unleash their true potential.”

Wills, who will be responsible for architecture, design, and delivery, says the move was an opportunity "he couldn’t pass up."

"I'm joining Qrious at a time when technology and information services are fusing to leverage information and provide transformational insights back into industry and society," he adds.
