The company has appointed its first Wellington-based team member, Tim Packer, who will be joining as Wellington general manager.
Packer will join the award-winning business to lead on a new phase of growth and collaboration within the Wellington region, focused on strengthening existing partnerships by working with customer partners and addressing opportunities within the public sector and enterprise by building new relationships with potential clients and stakeholders.
"I've always had a passion for solving complex problems with empowered teams, whether that be tackling business challenges with innovative approaches and technology solutions, or driving environmental and community sustainability initiatives in permaculture, orchard development and community gardens," Packer says.
"Given RUSH's depth of expertise with pandemic tech and computer vision, and the core principles of solving human problems by harnessing the power of technology, it felt like a natural fit that aligns incredibly well with my company values and purpose.
"I'm excited to help lead this already established business into their next phase of growth as we look at servicing the ecosystem that supports Government in the Wellington region and getting RUSH in front of the right people."
RUSH chief executive Brady Cox is looking forward to engaging Packer's connections and reinforcing RUSH's presence in the Wellington region as they scale their impact in the tech sector to enable the leading technology and design studio to service more companies and industries across New Zealand.
"Tim brings a plethora of experience servicing Government, wellbeing initiatives and other community welfare projects in the area which helps to galvanise RUSH's core competencies," Cox says.
"He is going to be an invaluable member of the team as we continue on this trajectory of growth which includes supporting the Wellington ecosystem."
