Vocus Communications has announced Maxine Elliott has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer of Vocus NZ, effective March 3 2015.

Elliott will replace David Heald, who has resigned for personal reasons, Vocus said in a statement.

She is the former CEO of Ultra Fast Fibre and GM Vector Communications, and hasmore than 10 years experience in the NZ telecommunications industry and 25 years experience in B2B businesses across Australia and New Zealand in senior leadership roles.

“We are very pleased that Maxine will be joining us for the next phase of growth and building on the success achieved by our NZ business to-date,” says James Spenceley, Vocus Communications Ltd CEO.

Elliott says she is delighted to have been appointed CEO, building upon the strong foundations established by David Heald and the team at FX Networks, now Vocus Communications.

Spenceley says, “We wish David the best of luck in future endeavours and thank him for his contribution as CEO for FX Networks and NZ Vocus Communications.”

David Heald joined FX Networks in 2009 as General Manager and has served as CEO since October 2011.

Vocus Communications Ltd acquired FX Networks in July 2014, announcing a rebrand FX Networks to Vocus Communications in February 2015.
