Crown-owned education broadband provider Network for Learning (N4L) has a new boss, appointing former 2 Degrees executive Larrie Moore as CEO effective of 7 February.

Moore helped create and launch the mobile challenger working with its founding CEO, the late Eric Hertz.

Before 2 Degrees he was chief operating officer at Orcon, where he helped launch New Zealand's first unbundled ADSL2+ fixed network, as well as faster internet and unlimited national calling for homes and businesses. 

He was also previously general manager of brand and consumer marketing at Vodafone.

“Larrie is a proven business leader with a track record of launching and growing brands,” N4L Chair Helen Robinson said. “We continue to play a significant role in the education sector and the Board is confident Larrie has the right combination of experience and leadership acumen to achieve the company’s ambitious goals and build on the many opportunities ahead.”

Moore replaces Greg Woolley, interim CEO for the past four months, and previously, John Hanna, N4L’s founding CEO.

Woolley will remain with the company in a part-time capacity as chief product officer.

Moore moved to New Zealand from the US with his New Zealand wife and three sons in 2005, following a career spanning senior sales and marketing roles in the UK with Fujitsu, Mars, and healthcare giant GSK. 

Most recently, Moore led a family owned business, Number Eight Retail Group, and currently serves as non-executive director of WiFi provider Zenbu Networks.

“It’s an incredibly exciting time to be joining the business, with many opportunities ahead, partnering with education and technology organisations to help deliver the new government’s goals for education," Moore said.

“The Managed Network is a unique and significant proposition, and I am really looking forward to working with the team to evolve and expand N4L’s operations ensuring we continue to meet the needs of the 811,000-plus students, teachers, and school staff using our services.”

N4L provides more than 2400 schools across New Zealand to fast, reliable, safe, uncapped internet via its Managed Network.

The company also works alongside education, government, and technology partners to help schools get the most from digital connectivity.
