Huawei New Zealand appoints new CEO

New Zealand, February 4: Huawei New Zealand has begun 2014 with the appointment of new CEO, Jason Wu, as former CEO Arthur Zhang departs to assume a new role in Norway.

Mr Wu takes on leadership of the New Zealand team in his 10th year with Huawei, following roles with the company’s offices in China, Nigeria, and Thailand.

“It is a great privilege to be joining the New Zealand office, having watched its progress over the past few years. In a relatively short time Huawei New Zealand has grown to partner with all major telecommunications operators here and is engaged in many exciting projects. There is still great potential for growth in this market and I look forward to working with our partners to bring New Zealanders the very best in telecommunications technology.”

Mr Wu joined Huawei in 2004 after several years as an account manager with Shanghai Bell Alcatel China. He has held several sales management roles within Huawei, most recently as Account Director for DTAC, a Telenor subsidiary, based in Thailand.

Mr Zhang held the local CEO role since 2010 and oversaw Huawei New Zealand’s transformation from small newcomer to an industry leader.

“My time here has been hugely rewarding and perhaps the most satisfying thing for me is that our success means Huawei New Zealand is now in a position where we can be active in supporting the community, investing locally, helping young New Zealanders with IT scholarships, backing local events, and even getting behind the Wellington Phoenix as a sponsor.

Mr Zhang has been promoted to Vice President for the multi-national Telenor account based out of Huawei Norway.

“Of course I am sad to be leaving this beautiful country, but this is a great new challenge and an opportunity I could not pass up,” he said.
