New CEO Appointed – Wayne Smith

After a rigorous search process Connexionz Limited are delighted to announce that Wayne Smith has been appointed as its Chief Executive Officer effective 29 October 2018. The Board unanimously agreed that Wayne’s considerable international commercial experience and successful track record of launching and growing a customer focused technology start-up in New Zealand made him the ideal candidate to lead Connexionz on the next stage of our journey.

Previously Wayne was CEO of Aeropath where he expanded sales from New Zealand across the Pacific, throughout Asia and into Europe, significantly exceeding growth aspirations for four consecutive years. Wayne has also held senior international roles with Airways, Thales and Hewlett Packard.

The Board wishes to thank Richard Riley for acting as Connexionz Interim CEO during the search process. After a transition to Wayne, Richard will continue to serve as a Connexionz Board Director.

Connexionz Board Chair Tony Kan says, “Today’s announcement follows a strong year in the United States on the back of the Valley Transit (Oregon) project and winning the San Joaquin tender in California. Positive outcomes from strong prospects from both East and West coasts and increasing revenues from customers demonstrates a real confidence in our RTT solution.”
