2degrees has appointed industry expert Andrew Fairgray to the role of Chief Business Officer, on its senior leadership team.
An industry veteran, Andrew was the former head of corporate and government sales at Vodafone, leading that company through a period of growth.
2degrees’ CEO Mark Aue said that Andrew was appointed to the role as he brings a unique combination of skills, especially having been a business owner himself:
“Andrew is hugely passionate about helping businesses succeed, and the role technology plays in that. It’s a real coup to have him on our team. 2degrees has been a full-service provider in business and government since 2015, and the opportunity to accelerate our growth in this area is significant. There’s no reason we shouldn’t be as successful in business as we’ve shown we can be in consumer,” said Mark.
Andrew says the role is one that he’s had his eye on for a while.
“It’s great to be joining 2degrees in its 10th year, and at a time when the brand is so strong, and increasingly relevant to Kiwi business owners. 2degrees has a history of driving the market with pricing, innovation and customer experience – a proud legacy we will continue” said Andrew.
He has held a range of executive roles in New Zealand and overseas with multi-national operators such as Alcatel Lucent, Nokia and IBM.
