InternetNZ appoints new Chief Executive

InternetNZ appoints new Chief Executive

Media release – 3 July 2013

This release is available online at [LINK]

InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jordan Carter as its new Chief Executive. Carter has held the Acting Chief Executive role since January 2013. His permanent appointment fills the gap left by former CE Vikram Kumar.

InternetNZ President Frank March says Carter was appointed following a rigorous recruitment process. 36 people applied for the role, with eleven candidates being long-listed and three making the shortlist.

The role will see Carter responsible to the elected InternetNZ Council for leading the organisation’s growing portfolio of policy and community work.

Jordan Carter has previously held senior policy roles within InternetNZ and has most recently worked as a consultant, providing telco, media and Internet policy advice to a range of clients in New Zealand and abroad.

March says that Jordan Carter has a deep understanding of Internet policy and research and is fully across the intricacies of regulation concerning the Internet and ICT more generally. “His skills and experience in these areas will stand InternetNZ in good stead as the Internet grows and starts encompassing more areas of public and technical policy. Joined with governance experience, strong leadership credentials and deep background knowledge of InternetNZ’s structure and ambitions, he is well suited to this role.

Carter says he is excited about the opportunity to play a leading role in building on InternetNZ’s many recent successes, and looks forward to working closely with Council, staff, members and stakeholders to implement plans that will make InternetNZ even more visible and relevant than it is today.

“An open and uncapturable Internet is essential to New Zealand’s prospects. InternetNZ is working with others to ensure the Internet remains a platform for innovation and change – ensuring its potential is not lost by drifting away from its founding principles of open standards and shared decision-making,” says Carter.

“I’m hugely pleased to be given the chance to serve InternetNZ and New Zealand more broadly in this role. InternetNZ can and should be the key voice standing up for the Internet in our national life. That is my goal: to lead InternetNZ in being that voice.

“In making technical and public policy suggestions to help protect and promote the Internet, we will work with partners old and new – and be careful to uphold our obligations to work in the interests of all New Zealanders,” says Carter.

InternetNZ's subsidiaries - NZRS and DNCL are not directly affected by this appointment, each having their own management and boards that report into Council.
