New CIO at Frucor

Former Ports of Auckland CIO Pieter Bakker moves to beverage company.

Pieter Bakker is the new CIO at Frucor for New Zealand and Australia.

Bakker says mobility, sales force and automation and business intelligence will be some key points of focus in the role.

Paul Miller, former Frucor CIO, is now a management consultant with CompleteView.

Prior to this, Bakker was CIO and then general manager strategic programmes at Ports of Auckland, following a reorganisation at the port. The split saw the ICT head report to the CFO; and the projects, business analysis and process improvement side move to a new role reporting to the GM of people and processes.

Paul Bainbridge, one of Bakker’s previous direct reports, got the role of manager ICT.

“It is a great story in terms of internal promotion as well as continuity for the IT team,” says Bakker.

The strategic programmes he had been working on are being distributed amongst several of the remaining executives.

One of them, PortConnect, a joint venture project between Port of Tauranga and Ports of Auckland (POAL) is now in the process of being set up as a separate business which will continue to be led, from POAL's side, by the GM of business development and CFO, Wayne Thompson.
