New chief executive to take IMNZ to next level

October 2016

The Institute of Management New Zealand is pleased to announce the appointment of Steven Naudé as its new chief executive.

Mr Naudé is also a director of executive education at Massey Business School and will bring the two organisations together in an even closer working relationship.

He replaces outgoing chief executive Fiona Hewitt, who led a refresh of the IMNZ brand and brokered the institute’s strategic partnership with Massey Business School earlier this year.

Mr Naudé has 20 years of experience in the education sector, including more than a decade at Pearson Education in South Africa and New Zealand. He was director of teaching and learning at the Marketing Association before joining Massey Business School as its director of professional, organisation and executive development in 2015.
