Peat’s passion for IT might bring him back

Looking ahead, Peat would consider some kind of role in ICTNZ

Ross Peat may be leaving Microsoft New Zealand after four years as managing director, but he is considering retaining some kind of role within ITANZ, the IT Association of New Zealand.

ITANZ’s transition into the much bigger ICTNZ will most likely be completed in time for ITANZ’s board meeting in August, he says.

“There’s a logical end point there, and that is when I’ll take my exit, in terms of representing ITANZ and Microsoft at the ICTNZ table,” he says.

After 23 years in the IT industry, Peat says he is looking forward to spending more time with his family.

“First of all, I’m going to take some time out and reflect on where I am at in my life,” he says.

However, there are some business projects he’ll probably look into.

“I’ve got a real passion for technology … and I’d still consider some sort of role in ICTNZ, going forward, if other people feel that is appropriate,” he says.
