New Zealand based mobile network, 2degrees has appointed the company's Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Stewart Sherriff as its permanent CEO.
He is replacing Eric Hertz who died in a plane accident in March this year.
Andy Scott, Head of the 2degrees Board Recruitment Committee says Stewart will retain the role of Chair while the Board progresses a replacement.
"Stewart has had a long association with 2degrees as a Board member for the past five years and serving as Chairman for more than three. In the five months since the death of Eric Hertz his leadership has ensured momentum for the business," says Mr Scott.
"In addition, the Board was drawn to Stewart's experience with a range of overseas mobile operators, especially his success as CEO of Ireland's Meteor, which was the third entrant in a market with two dominant competitors," he says.
Mr Sherriff will resign from his role as CTO of Trilogy International Partners, 2degrees' majority shareholder. He and his wife will complete the move from Chicago and begin the process to make New Zealand their home.
