MyWave makes chairman and CTO appointments

MyWave makes chairman and CTO appointments

Auckland, 11 March 2014 - Cloud software start-up MyWave has appointed Phil Norman to the position of chairman and James Ladd to the position of chief technology officer.

MyWave founder and CEO Geraldine McBride says the board chairman and CTO appointments are important steps as MyWave begins its first round of private equity capital raising and builds its Melbourne-based software development team.

“As the founding chairman of Xero, and with more than 30 years’ experience in developing technology companies, Phil Norman is a great asset to have leading our board,” McBride says. “He is a highly regarded expert adviser on technology commercialisation, particularly with regard to New Zealand technology companies looking to address a global market. I am delighted he has accepted the chairman role.”

Phil Norman says the emergence of the cloud computing model gives New Zealand technology companies the means to address a truly global market, leveraging local knowledge and experience and the ability to move fast to capitalise on both local and international market opportunities.

“Xero has demonstrated how a New Zealand company, with a New Zealand capital and investor base, can aspire to becoming a truly global company in its own cloud niche. I see MyWave in a similar light and I look forward to being part of the MyWave adventure,” Phil Norman says.

Geraldine McBride says the board chairman appointment follows the setting up of a MyWave software development team based in Melbourne, headed by newly-appointed chief technology officer James Ladd – a highly experienced software innovator, international speaker and creator of the Redline Smalltalk programming language.
