New General Manager for World of WearableArt

New General Manager for World of WearableArt

World of WearableArt Limited, the company behind the internationally renowned World of WearableArt (WOW) competition and show, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Tim Launder to the position of General Manager. Mr Launder is currently General Manager of Weta Limited, and will take up the role, based at WOW’s headquarters in Nelson, on 13 May 2014.

Dame Suzie Moncrieff, WOW Founding Director, said she was delighted that Tim was joining the company to lead WOW in its next phase of development. “Tim is a very good fit for the company and brings an outstanding skill set, as demonstrated by his contribution to the growth of Weta Limited over the last six years, and extensive international experience with Fonterra before that. We very much look forward to working with Tim.”

Tim Launder said he was excited by the prospect of joining WOW and taking the business to a new level. “With so many people blown away by their experience of WOW every year, the role offers the excitement of being a part of a creative product as well as the commercial opportunity of further developing the business from both a commercial and creative perspective. I will miss the team at Weta who have been such an important part of my life for the past six years but look forward to continuing to work with them in their capacity as a valued partner of WOW”.
