Computerworld NZ has a new editor with the appointment of Richard Wood. He replaces Computerworld founding editor Don Hill who stepped down last month after 11 years.
Wood is presently editor of fortnightly newspaper New Zealand Reseller News and has had extensive involvement in both the computer and the publishing industries. He was also part of the original editorial team that started Computerworld.
Two years ago he rejoined IDG Communications to launch NZ Reseller News, a publication aimed at companies selling computer products and services. He helped develop it from monthly to fortnightly publishing frequency.
"I'm delighted to have Rich- ard take over the helm at Computerworld," says publisher Martin Taylor. "He has excellent credentials to understand Computerworld's market and to continue its tradition as the voice of information technology management in New Zealand."
Hill is starting a new publication for IDG called CIO magazine. It will be a monthly magazine for chief information officers and other senior executives responsible for developing their organisations' information technology strategies. Its first issue is scheduled for July.
