Tuesday, 8 December, 2015 – Christchurch, New Zealand
We are delighted to announce the appointment of two new directors to Tait's Board.
New Zealand Post Chief Executive Brian Roche has been appointed as Chairman of the Board and is joined by Michael Daniell, Chief Executive of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, as a Non-Executive Director.
Mr. Roche takes over from Peter van Rij, who has been Chairman since 2007. Peter will remain a member of the Board.
Both directors have considerable global experience in the private and public sector and we look forward to their insight and guidance as we continue to grow our business globally and deliver the best service to our customers.
The past 18 months have seen major investment from Tait in our global business, with the opening of new offices in Sao Paulo and Sydney. The appointment of two high-profile New Zealand business leaders to our Board reinforces our commitment to our global objectives and to our home country and the research and development we undertake at our global headquarters in Christchurch.
We have a strong focus on delivering a cohesive and unified approach to our market, and our R&D team work closely with our New Zealand customers to co-create innovative new technology and service offerings which we take to our customers around the world.
