Ken Holley, former CIO of NZ Post-owned Localist, has been announced as the head of New Zealand operations for contact centre cloud provider Ipscape. Holley has had previous experience with Ipscape, having worked with the company on Localist’s contact centre telephony system.

He said cloud processing is ideal for a startup like Localist, as it allows ICT capacity to be tailored to volume of business – which was zero when the NZPost digital subsidiary opened.

In February, Holley’s role at Localist was disestablished. Holley’s new role reports directly to Ipscape CEO Simon Burke.

“Ken is a great addition to the IPscape business. He brings great local knowledge and a shared vision in transforming the way business operates through cloud technology,” says Burke.

Last year Holley was a finalist for the CIO of the Year Award.
