CyberCX CEO John Paitaridis said, “Brett has served with distinction as the leader of our New Zealand business. He has a wealth of knowledge and expertise that will continue to be of significant value to CyberCX and our customers as he takes up his Board Director role with CyberCX New Zealand.”
“We are excited about the leadership announcements and confident we are ideally placed for the next phase of growth and expansion in the New Zealand market,” Paitaridis added.
In announcing his decision to transition to the Board Director role of CyberCX New Zealand, Moore said, “I’m immensely proud of our achievements in New Zealand over the past few years as we’ve grown and scaled to deliver enterprise-grade cyber solutions to many of the country’s largest and critical organisations.”
“As CyberCX New Zealand’s workforce and capability have increased, our mission and purpose has remained constant – securing and empowering our communities across Aotearoa,” Moore added.
Tim Sewell has served as COO of CyberCX New Zealand since 2021, working closely with Moore as the company’s capabilities have expanded to meet the growing market demand in New Zealand.
Sewell said, “I’m excited and energised for the next phase of the CyberCX journey in New Zealand and across the Tasman, where we are seeing significant demand from businesses and government for support to improve their cyber resilience and accelerate their digital transformations.”
