​Lexel recruits ex-Gen-i CEO as advisory board member

Former Air New Zealand CIO joins as advisory board member as company approaches 30 years of business.

Lexel Systems has appointed Garth Biggs as an advisory board member, following a recruitment campaign across the country.

As a well-known industry figure, Biggs was previously CIO of Air New Zealand in the late 1990s, before taking charge of Gen-i as CEO for five years until October 2004.

In drawing on over 30 years of experience, Biggs has also held director roles at a host of ICT solution providers in New Zealand, including Koorb Consulting, Auldhouse Computer Training, Maclean Computing and ViFX.

“As Lexel verges on celebrating 30 years in business, this appointment will help cement Lexel’s continued growth of its key capabilities,” a company spokesperson told Reseller News.

Based in Auckland, Lexel currently employs over 170 staff, with revenues exceeding $50 million.

“As a well-known industry icon, Garth is an exciting addition to Lexel’s advisory board, bringing with him a vast amount of IT strategy and mentoring experience,” a company spokesperson added.

Lexel established its Advisory Board in 2013 to act as an independent source of support, with 2016 undergoing significant changes following the passing of Lars Fellman and the resignation of Mike Smith upon accepting the role of managing director at IBM New Zealand.

Fellman and Smith are joined by Murray Ward as the three founding members of the Advisory Board, who is also currently chairman.
