There are changes at the top of Huawei New Zealand.

Huawei Technologies has a new New Zealand boss: Yanek Fan, an 11-year company veteran.

Fan will replace outgoing chief executive Jason Wu in August following a month-long handover - Wu will shift to a governance role across Huawei’s operations in Europe.

Fan most recently having served three years as deputy CEO and director of the carrier network business department of Huawei Czech Republic, overseing rapid growth in the business and helping to lead a team of over 340.

He has also worked in Poland and held other senior roles at Huawei headquarters in China in sales and project management.

“Huawei is well established in the New Zealand market, with strong local customer relationships and there is a lot of potential for growth," Fan said in a statement. 

"New Zealanders embrace innovation and there is a clear willingness from the industry and government to invest in future technologies."

Huawei began its operations in New Zealand in 2005, notably helping to build and finance 2degrees' mobile network.

It now partners with Spark, 2degrees and Vodafone NZ, as well as providing a third of the technology behind the New Zealand Government's Ultra-Fast Broadband initiative. 

In March Huawei announced plans to invest $400 million locally on a cloud data centre and innovation labs.

Fan said he looked forward to working with operators on the expansion of 4.5G technology in New Zealand and the future deployment of the Internet of Things and 5G.
