REANNZ has appointed Dianna Taylor, currently the general manager technology and CIO at the New Zealand Racing Board, as its new CEO.

REANNZ chair Janine Smith said Taylor brought strong strategic and stakeholder engagement skills and experience within a technical environment and was also recognised as a highly capable leader. 

“The board and I look forward to working with Dianna as we reposition REANNZ to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead to support our members and to meet the needs of New Zealand’s research, education and innovation community.”

Taylor will take up the role in early August.

Smith also acknowledged the contribution made by outgoing CEO Nicole Ferguson over her nine years with the organisation. 

Ferguson, who was chief executive for the last three years, has chosen to step down following parental leave.

David Skinner, currently acting chief executive and a director of REANNZ, will return to his director-only role in early July.

REANNZ is a Crown-owned company that operates the National Research and Education Network, a specialist high-performance network that enables scientists and researchers to move big data, and underpins their ability to connect, collaborate and contribute to research locally and globally.
