Head of Operations and Technology
As a foundation member of Māori Television, Mark has played a critical role in our development, joining in 2001 where he supported the original Board of Directors before becoming the Corporate Services Manager in 2003 and then the Technology Manager in 2007.
Mark has a strong background in project management and IT, spending a number of years in Australia working for Transfield on the Northside Storage Tunnel before returning to New Zealand to take up his initial supporting role for Māori Television.
In 2011, Mark was recognised as Māori Television’s first employee to reach the 10 year milestone.
Mark was appointed the General Manager of Technology in 2013, a newly created department responsible for the integration of traditional broadcasting capabilities with new digital media distribution channels including online, mobile, social media and other emerging technologies. This appointment reflects the increasingly important role technology plays as we move towards integrating TV and online services.
