datacom-tony-carter-1bA man under many hats is set to take another chair at the table. A former chair of Air New Zealand, Tony Carter has been promoted from board member to board chair of  New Zealand-based IT giant, Datacom Group.

In addition to his new responsibilities, he will also continue on as chair of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare and TR Group, as well as retaining a place on the board of ANZ Bank New Zealand.

“Datacom has a tremendous pedigree as the country’s leading IT services and payroll provider,” Mr Carter says. “With its expansion into Australia and beyond, we are on the cusp of a new era and I’m excited to be part of that challenge.”

Awarded the Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit (CNZM) for his services to business governance in this year’s New Year Honours, Mr Carter brings a wealth of experience to his new role.
