InternetNZ appoints Adam Hunt to DNCL Board; reappoints Kenneth Johnston


InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) today announces the appointment of Adam Hunt to the Domain Name Commission Limited (DNCL) Board and the reappointment of Kenneth Johnston.

DNCL is the InternetNZ subsidiary responsible for developing and monitoring a competitive registrar market, as well as creating a fair environment for the registration and management of .nz domain names.

Auckland-based Hunt is a seasoned financial risk and ICT executive, having previously worked as Head of Strategic Intelligence at the Financial Markets Authority and in senior leadership roles at Oracle, Inland Revenue, Turners & Growers, Gen-i and New Zealand Post.

Wellington-based Johnston is a Barrister and Chair of both the Financial Services Complaints Scheme and New Zealand Teachers Disciplinary Tribunal.

Domain Name Commission Chair David Farrar says DNCL is pleased to have an individual of Adam’s caliber and experience joining the Board and welcomes Kenneth Johnston’s reappointment.

"We’re confident that both will bring tremendous value and assistance to DNCL, especially as we work towards raising awareness of and implementing registrations of .nz domain names directly at the second level.”

InternetNZ President Jamie Baddeley is pleased to welcome Adam to DNCL’s Board of Directors.

“With his mix of strategy, business planning and technology architecture expertise Adam is an important addition to DNCL’s Board and we look forward to working with him.”
