Maori business leader David MacLeod has joined the board of cloud start-up PrimeQ, as the Oracle specialists continue to expand across New Zealand.

In holding the position of Fonterra’s first Maori director, MacLeod holds several corporate governance roles and is founder of one of Taranaki’s largest electrical contracting and electrical network servicing companies.

MacLeod has been appointed director of the PrimeQ Group and Chair of the PrimeQ New Zealand Advisory Board.

“PrimeQ is an exciting New Zealand business in the technology sector that is creating jobs for New Zealanders and making a positive contribution to our economy,” MacLeod said.

“These new jobs are high skill, high value roles in a field that is essential for advancing business enterprise.

“The majority of New Zealand organisations investing in enterprise systems are moving to the cloud, with PrimeQ firmly positioned as the leader in Oracle cloud technology. PrimeQ has a strong future in New Zealand and I look forward to being part of this journey.”

Currently, MacLeod is chairman of Taranaki Regional Council, a director of Port Taranaki and Predator Free 2050, and governing director of Greaves Electrical.

Furthermore, the business leader is also on the Committee of Management for Parininihi ki Waitotara (PKW), alongside roles as director of Parininihi ki Waitotara (PKW) Farms and trustee of PKW Trust.

Alongside Fonterra, MacLeod was previously national councillor of Local Government New Zealand and deputy chairman of the Regional Sector Group, representing all regional and unitary councils throughout the country.

MacLeod is a long-term serving local council member in New Zealand and affiliates to Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Mutunga, Ngāti Ruanui and Ngāti Porou.

“David’s appointment to the PrimeQ Board sends a strong message to the New Zealand business community that we’re serious about IT in the cloud,” said PrimeQ CEO Andrew McAdams, who originates from Dunedin.

“David is one of New Zealand’s most respected and influential business leaders with a leadership style that aligns with PrimeQ’s own core values of gratitude and humility.

“In addition to his governance role, David will work closely with the PrimeQ New Zealand management team in a mentoring and business development capacity.

“Under David’s leadership we plan to accelerate our growth in New Zealand with a focus on jobs creation.”

Headquartered in Adelaide, PrimeQ is a leading provider of Oracle Cloud enterprise software with offices in Auckland and Wellington, led by New Zealand general manager Paul Hearnden.
