Vodafone New Zealand announces new Managing Director


New Zealand’s fastest growing mobile company has announced the appointment of Tim Miles as its Managing Director.

From 1 January 2002, Mr Miles will take the top spot at Vodafone New Zealand.

According to Mr Miles, the New Zealand mobile market has begun to mature in the last two years and Vodafone’s strategy has changed accordingly.

“We’ve grown from 130,000 customers to more than a million in less than three years. We’re now focusing on providing both our consumer and business customers with even more compelling services that will allow us to increase revenues,” he said.

This will include the leveraging of the Vodafone Group’s position as the world’s largest mobile communications company by introducing innovative products and services that create value for NZ customers.

“The business market is a key growth area where Vodafone’s strengths are its global experience and its ability to deploy across many countries. In particular, Vodafone New Zealand will be working closely with Vodafone Australia to serve our business customers,” said Mr Miles.

Mr Miles joined Vodafone New Zealand in August after seven years at Unisys Corporation where he was most recently Vice President Operations, Global Industries, based at Unisys headquarters in Philadelphia, USA. Prior to this he was Managing Director of Unisys New Zealand.

His work oversaw the evolution of Unisys from a product-based company to one focused on service and solutions delivery.

Mr Miles has a Bachelor of Arts from the Victoria University and has worked for IBM New Zealand, Data General Corporation and ICI New Zealand.

Arthur Neely will remain as managing director during the transitional period until 1 January. He will continue to serve on the Vodafone New Zealand executive team and Board of Directors in the new year, whilst heading new Pacific regional initiatives.
