Vodafone NZ appoints Richard Mooney as Chief Strategy Officer
Vodafone New Zealand is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Mooney to the newly created role of Chief Strategy Officer, to help guide the business through its ongoing reinvention towards becoming a more digitally focused business.
Richard has more than 20 years’ experience within the technology, media and telco (TMT) sector as a strategy and corporate development professional. He has held similar strategy roles in leading telecommunications companies overseas, including Vodafone Group/UK and most recently at Liberty Global, where he worked on the recently announced Virgin Media O2 merger. Prior to this, he was a management consultant helping transform TMT businesses across Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Africa.
CEO Jason Paris says Richard will bring international best-practice and strategic insights to benefit Vodafone NZ customers. “Richard’s depth of experience within the telco, media and technology industries plus his strategic approach will be invaluable during the next phase of our development at Vodafone NZ.
“His knowledge of digital technologies, infrastructure and understanding of how to enhance customer experience will help us thrive, especially as New Zealand looks to recover from the impact of COVID-19 and as people’s expectations and needs continue to change. We’re looking forward to Richard joining the team in July.”
Richard holds a Masters in Science from the University of Bristol. In his spare time, he enjoys competing in triathlons and spending time with his wife and four children.
