Modica Group snaps up Auckland Airport senior executive to further growth

28 Jun 18

Auckland Airport general counsel and company secretary Scott Weenink is leaving his post and taking up a new job as Modica Group executive director and chief commercial officer.

Modica Group is an Auckland-based global enterprise messaging firm that provides intelligent messaging solutions through products and APIs.

Modica Group products are used by major trading banks, IRD, and NZX50 companies.

Weenink is also Modica Group’s Board of Directors in August 2016 as an independent director. He will remain on the Board as an executive director. Through his board membership, he has helped to build the company’s growth and strategic vision.

Weenink will also take a ‘significant’ stake in Modica Group, while his new role will also allow him to further drive the company’s growth strategy.

“We are delighted that Scott has now agreed to come on board full-time as an executive Director and Chief Commercial Officer to help further accelerate our growth across key markets,” comments Modica Group chief executive officer and founder Stuart Wilson.
 

“Scott has already made a significant contribution to the company as an independent director and we look forward to further utilising Scott’s international M&A experience, specifically in technology and telecoms, and also experience working in emerging markets throughout Asia, the Middle-East and North Africa”.

Weenink is currently completing his notice period requirements at Auckland Airport. He has also resigned his Directorship with North Queensland Airports and will also resign from Auckland International Airport’s hotel joint venture with Tainui Group Holdings.

“I enjoyed my time at Auckland International Airport but I am pleased to now have the opportunity to spend more time focussed on the success of Modica Group,” comments Weenink.

“It is an exciting company with significant growth opportunities in New Zealand and other markets. The company is well run and has exceptional technology capability meaning the technological product is very compelling for both partners and end users.”

Scott Weenink will also continue as a Non-Executive Director of Generate Investment Management Ltd, the manager of the Generate KiwiSaver Scheme, where he has sat on the Board of Directors since August 2016.

Weenink will join Modica Group late 2018.
