NEC New Zealand has announced that its Managing Director Leonard Dench has departed the role, due to health reasons.

“Unfortunately, I’m now unable to give my undivided attention to the role,” Dench says.

“I remain passionate about NEC and am immensely proud of what we’ve achieved. This company is on an excellent growth path and I’m confident that the leadership team and board will continue leading NEC New Zealand successfully.”

Dench started his career as a telecommunications technician and advanced into strategic business planning and tactical execution.

During his tenure, Dench was General Manager of NEC New Zealand, responsible for leading the local operation in collaboration with the wider NEC group.

“On behalf of the board, we sincerely thank Leonard for his contributions to NEC New Zealand,” adds Tetsuro Akagi, CEO, NEC Asia Pacific.

“He is passionate about the business and has dedicated his life to NEC. His decision to step aside is courageous, but made in the best interests of NEC.

“We are all very sorry at this outcome, but hope he can now take time to address what is most important.”

Going forward, Akagi will act as Managing Director of NEC New Zealand pending the announcement of a new Managing Director, which is expected in July 2016.
