Orcon has established four new positions on its leadership team, as the company positions itself for growth.

Fresh from appointing Greg McAlister as new CEO two weeks ago, the new-look business now welcomes Simon Wilson to the role of GM Business, Brent Nicholson as GM Corporate and Government role, with David Clarke taking up the role of GM Wholesale and Regulatory.

Simon Hayden will fill the new role of GM of New Markets and Media, starting on May 27.

Orcon says Wilson, Nicholson and Clarke start their roles immediately however, joining other new appointees, Warren Hurst CTO, Tony Reimann COO, and McAlister.

McAlister says the new appointments signal Orcon’s clear vision to grow and expand into new areas of business.

“We truly believe Orcon is ready to expand operations and further cement itself as a leader, delivering innovation across a range of markets,” he says.

McAlister says many of the new GMs will be tasked with building teams to ensure capability, and he expects Orcon to hire a number of new staff in coming months.

“This really is a new era for the company, and we plan to unveil new products, plans, and innovations very soon.”

Kordia sold Orcon, its residential and business ISP, to a buyer group of Kiwi businesspeople, headed by Hurst in mid-April, for the reported sum of between $30-$35m.
