New First Mobile Board Member

New First Mobile Board Member

New Zealand owned and based mobile phone retailer, First Mobile National Limited, has appointed Terence Delaney as its first non-executive director to the boards of its New Zealand and Australian companies.

First Mobile has 125 stores throughout Australasia and plans to open a further 20 over the next twelve months. First Mobile is already Australasia’s biggest Vodafone retailer.

Barry Wright, First Mobile Chief Financial Officer says, “Mr Delaney brings skills and expertise in the retail sector that can take First Mobile to the next level.”

Mr Delaney brings a range of expertise to the First Mobile Board including more than 30 years in retail, previous directorship experience and strategic planning. He sees his role with First Mobile as exciting and exceptionally challenging in a rapidly changing market.

“The mobile phone market is ever changing and evolving and it’s a real challenge to stay ahead with up to date products and consumer offers. In both Australia and New Zealand there is a strong retail focus and I have significant retail experience to help in this area,” he says.

Mr Delaney has previously been the C.E.O. of Farmers Trading Company, an Executive Director of The Warehouse and most recently Group Manager Retail for New Zealand Post. He is also a director and past president of the New Zealand Retailers Association, director of Caspex Corporation and trustee of the NZ Post Superannuation Fund.

Mr Delaney’s involvement began when he introduced First Mobile retail outlets into The Warehouse Stationery stores while working for The Warehouse.
