Acting Chief Executive Announced

Acting Chief Executive Announced – InternetNZ Media release - 24 January 2013

(Available online at

InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand) has appointed Jordan Carter as its Acting Chief Executive.

Mr Carter will lead the organisation while a new Chief Executive is recruited. His appointment commences on Monday 28 January 2013.

Mr Carter is a previous Deputy Executive Director and Policy Director of InternetNZ. In recent years he has worked as a contracted Policy Advisor for InternetNZ and for other clients in New Zealand and overseas.

"I am delighted we will have Jordan's skills and experience at our disposal in this transitional period," says InternetNZ President Dr Frank March.

"The Council will be moving quickly to recruit a permanent replacement Chief Executive. Jordan Carter's role is to lead the operating team in between Vikram Kumar's departure and the handover to a new permanent appointee, and to continue the development and implementation of InternetNZ's strategy, operations and work plan.

"He will work closely with the staff team, including with Policy Lead Susan Chalmers, who is InternetNZ's main spokesperson following Vikram Kumar's departure.

"It is important to the Council and to me that InternetNZ remains politically neutral and non-partisan. During his time as Acting Chief Executive, Jordan Carter will cease his involvement in both the Labour Party and the New Zealand Fabian Society,” says Dr March.

Jordan Carter says he is delighted with the appointment. "I am looking forward to the chance to lead the InternetNZ team at a very busy time for the organisation. The upcoming visit of Sir Tim Berners-Lee, preparations for NetHui 2013, and consultation with members about our strategic direction are just a few of the things I will be working on with the Council and the staff team.

"My focus from Monday is to serve InternetNZ - a challenge I am hugely looking forward to," Mr Carter says.
