Baker was most recently a consultant at Voco, where he was programme manager for the NZ Regional Fibre Group.
In that role, he was responsible for coordinating development of strategy, policy positions and supporting material for members’ submissions on the UFB project.
He has also worked as commercial manager for technology services at Fonterra, and as legal and compliance services manager at IAG.
