Business Central Incorporated board re-elects Chair

Business Central Incorporated board re-elects Chair and announces new Wellington Chamber President

Business Central is happy to announce that its board has re-elected Vaughan Renner as Chair, and has elected Jo Healey as the President of the Wellington Chamber.

Business Central Incorporated represents three brands - Business Central, Wellington Chamber of Commerce, and ExportNZ Central.

Jo Healey is currently Head of Global Technology Services for IBM NZ and joined the Business Central board in October and she replaces Peter Cullen as the President of the Wellington Chamber. Peter Cullen’s tenure as a Director has come to an end, but his association with the Chamber of Commerce continues as a Life Member.

Vaughan Renner has been associated with Business Central over a long period, serving as a board member and most recently as Chair.

The appointments were made at the first board meeting following the AGM in October, when three other new board members were ratified - Claire Pedley, Karun Shenoy, and Adele Rose.

Jo Healey and Adele Rose will join Vaughan Renner as Business Central’s representatives on the Council of BusinessNZ. Vaughan is the current President of BusinessNZ.

John Milford, Chief Executive of Business Central and the Wellington Chamber of Commerce, welcomed the appointments of Jo Healey and Vaughan Renner.

"As a new Board member, Jo will bring a mix of experience and knowledge. Her experience leading Fujitsu and Dimension Data, as well as her current role with IBM, means we have an expert on the region’s burgeoning technology sector.

"We also give a warm welcome to our three other new board members, Claire Pedley, Karun Shenoy, and Adele Rose. They each bring experience from across the business spectrum - small and big business, city and provincial, as well as governance, human resources, sustainability and IT skills."

"Vaughan’s re-appointment as Chair confirms the board’s overall satisfaction with the way our three brands are currently operating. His leadership and expertise is invaluable to our organisations and we are delighted with the re-appointment."
