NZME., formerly APNZ News and Media, has appointed the former Tower executive Michael Boggs as its new chief financial officer as the company considers an initial public offer and share market float.
Boggs' role at Tower saw him manage the group's multi-billion dollar assets, the company's Pacific Island operations and play a leading role in its earthquake recovery programme.
He also played a leading role in the recent group-wide programme that resulted in the sales of Tower's life insurance, health insurance and investment management businesses.
In March he was named the country's top chief financial officer at the New Zealand CFO Awards.
