Coca-Cola CIO joins Microsoft

Donna Wright opts for vendor role

Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) CIO Donna Wright is to join Microsoft New Zealand as services director.

Her core responsibility will be to oversee all activities relating to the services business, including consulting and premier support groups.

The software giant also announced the promotion of Frazer Scott to the role of business, marketing and operations director. Both Wright and Scott, who is acting ANZ marketing director for Xbox and PC, will start at these positions in mid-October.

Wright has held a range of ICT management posts in both the fast moving consumer goods and airlines sectors. Before joining CCA, she had worked as corporate solutions manager for Air New Zealand and business systems manager for Ansett Australia.

Paul Muckleston, Microsoft NZ managing director, says Wright has proven business acumen from her experience as a CIO and will add a unique customer perspective to Microsoft’s local team.
