MetService chief to move to NZ Post to head technology

Paul Reid will take up new tech-focused NZ Post role

MetService CEO Paul Reid is moving to NZ Post to take up a newly created position of group general manager innovation and technology. He begins the new job in March.

NZ Post Group CEO Brian Roche says the new position will help put technology at the centre of the company’s strategy to be more customer-focused and to provide improved, relevant products and services.

“Paul Reid is an innovation and solutions expert who understands the importance of technology and being able to fully utilise it in the commercial arena,” he says.

Reid’s appointment follows the announcements in November of the appointment of Airways Corporation CEO Ashley Smout to head up NZ Post's new operations division, and Gary Woodham to lead the customer solutions and services division.
