2degrees appoints new CEO

Mark Aue joined 2degrees in July 2018 as CFO.

Once a new CFO is appointed, he will begin in his new role and current CEO Stewart Sherriff will commence his retirement.

2degrees chairman Brad Horwitz says the appointment followed an international search that attracted a high calibre of applicants.

“Mark has impressed the Board with his financial management, active leadership and understanding of our business today and the opportunities ahead. Coupled with his extensive local and global industry experience, we are delighted to make an appointment that will ensure stability and continued growth at 2degrees,” says Horwitz, in a statement.

Aue has significant industry experience through financial, commercial and operational leadership roles. These include being CFO of Vodafone New Zealand, CFO of Vodafone’s Global Enterprise division in the UK, and a director of Vodafone Fiji.

“Few companies have made as much impact on the everyday lives of Kiwis as 2degrees,” says Aue.

“From a distance, I have watched the company grow from strength to strength, bringing significant benefits to the telecommunications market through its disruptive innovation and an unrelenting belief in ‘fighting for fair’ for all New Zealanders.”
