Mike Foley of Watercare Services has been named CIO of the Year, and Absolute IT is the winner of the Excellence in IT Recruitment Award.
The winners were announced at the gala dinner last night during the first day of the two-day CIO Summit at the SkyCity Convention Centre.
The judges said Mike Foley built the case for increased investment in ICT at Watercare, gained the support of the organisation, and increased ICT investment 10-fold from what it was previously. The result was a “significant lift in customer service, upgrading and standardising of key ICT systems and serviuces, significant reduction in business risk to Watercare related to ICT.”
In November, Foley will take on the role of information systems manager at Auckland Council. The judges noted that as a result of improved ICT capability and systems, “Watercare is well positioned as it takes on services previously provided by the individual Auckland local authorities as the Auckland Super City is formed.”
