The board of the New Zealand Information Communication Technology group (NZICT) has welcomed three new additions to replace three outgoing members. Following on its AGM last week, NZICT has appointed CEO of Datacom Greg Davidson, IBM Marketing and Communications manager Michael Friedberg, and managing director of Hewlett Packard NZ Keith Watson.
The three new members replace outgoing members Daryl French (IBM), Geoff Lawrie (Cisco) and Geoff Hunt (Kordia).
“These three individuals will bring a vast range of skills and experience to the board. We have a fantastic cross-section of representation from small, medium, large, NZ and multi-national members,” says NZICT chair Bennett Medary.
David Stone from TCF and David Boyle, nowa with Ernst Young – two independent board members invited to join the board for a one year term – have also stood down.
Brett O’Riley, NZICT’s inaugural CEO, left his role at the end of last week and the board expects to announce his replacement in the coming weeks.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing board members, who have made a substantial contribution to NZICT,” adds Medary.
The new NZICT members join existing members Andrew Hunt (Kinetics), Bennett Medary (Simpl), Bob Pinchin (Swaytech), Chris Quin (Gen-i), Ian Clarke (Fronde), Paul Muckleston (Microsoft), and Richard Laverty (NZTE).
