SkyCity’s former information services general manager, Damian Swaffield, has literally crossed the road to join Television New Zealand. Swaffield is now TVNZ’s general manager of technology and has been replaced at SkyCity by Colin Croft.
(TVNZ's headquarters are opposite the casino complex on Auckland's Victoria St).
TVNZ’s former IT head, Neil Andrew, left at the end of March and his old role — that of head of resources and technology — has now been split in two. The technology manager’s role that Swaffield has taken has been separated from the resources side of Andrew’s former role. This is now a separate position which carries the title “head of broadcasting services”.
