New IIA Board Membership Announced
The Internet Industry Association (IIA) welcomes four new members to its Board. The election was finalised at the IIA Annual General Meeting held on the 26 April.
Hwei Oh, Marketing Manager ANZ, Sophos; Matt Tett, MD of Enex Testlab; Jonathan Dickson, Sales Director at Gizmo; and Matthew Brigham, Director of Account Management with Trend Micro; each take seats as IIA Directors. These appointments add a wealth of depth and experience to the Association.
Bruce Linn, IIA Chairman, says, “We’re delighted to announce our new board. We thank all nominees contesting and congratulate those who have been successful. They will bring enthusiasm to the Association’s advocacy on a range of industry and membership concerns. With these appointments we’ve secured a wealth of experience, industry knowhow and influence, and we’ll be putting them to good use.”
The new appointees join incumbent members including: Chairman Bruce Linn, director of SABRENet; Deputy Chairman, Patrick Fair, Partner at Baker and McKenzie Lawyers; Treasurer Charles, Heunemann, MD APAC, Natterbox; Finance Committee Member, John Lindsay, CTO, Internode; and Director Peter Price, CEO and Director, Crime Stoppers.
“The IIA was formed 14 years ago when the Internet and its implications for society and commerce were barely understood,” adds Mr Linn. “Since then, change has been embraced with enthusiasm and purpose, but challenges remain for the digital economy and productivity in Australia. This is a new era for the IIA, and it brings a contemporary focus to these issues. The IIA has the agility and ability to engage these dynamic challenges, we’re here to stay.”
