I recently joined the NZTech Women High Impact Team, with the honour of being the group’s first male representative. This has significantly improved the teams gender diversity to a proportion not far off the percentage of women in tech in New Zealand businesses!
The technology sector in New Zealand continues to grow rapidly and is a key enabler and accelerator on all fronts for the rest of the economy. I am very fortunate to be part of it and humbled by the latest opportunity to make a difference. First and foremost, our Deputy Chair Rachel Kelly and I would like to acknowledge the hard work and successes contributed by the previous Chair of NZTech, Bennett Medary. In our new roles, we are fortunate to inherit a top-performing team of board members, CEO Graeme Muller, advisors and staff.
