Kordia Group CEO Scott Bartlett is taking extended leave to focus on his health, effective immediately. 

Bartlett has been diagnosed with multiple tumours on the brain and treatment is currently underway.

“We all have a huge amount of love and respect for Scott," said group CFO Shaun Rendell, who will step up to act as interim CEO. 

"The entire team wishes him the best of luck for his journey ahead, and we look forward to seeing him back in the office soon.

“At Kordia, we’ve always taken the view that the health and well-being of our people comes first, and we’re fully committed to supporting Scott during this difficult time.

“For our customers, it’s very much business as usual and we remain fully focused on ensuring they continue to receive the best service, advice and support."

Bartlett recently joined the board of ASB. He has been Kordia Group CEO since August 2016 after joining the company as its New Zealand CEO in 2013.

Before that he was CEO of ISP Orcon.

Most recently Bartlett has championed a push to bring VHF marine safety services to the Pacific Islands, bringing a very distinctive, forthright and humourous style to Parliamentary committee hearings.

"You can go out, hop on a boat, have your little VHF receiver there -- it probably cost, you know, 50 bucks from Burnsco or something -- and if you run out of fuel or you’re in a worse situation, we will hear you from our maritime operations centre here in Wellington and we will ensure that you are rescued or assisted," Bartlett said at the time.

The project could be delivered in three phases over three or four years at about $3 million or $4 million per phase, he said.

"So it is not small; it’s not ginormous."
