Intel CEO, Philip Cronin, has replaced Data#3 CEO, John Grant, as the chair of the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA).
Grant departed the board after serving on it for three years. According to an AIIA statement, Cronin was elected by the 16 members of the board.
“With the current national focus on the future success of the NBN and related applications, I believe that the AIIA has the credentials and charter to represent its members’ needs and reinforce its position as the voice of the digital economy,” Cronin said in the statement.
Other changes made as part of the reshuffle include the replacement of three board members.
Infosys CEO, Jackie Korhonen and EMC Australia CEO, David Webster, were brought in following a vote by the AIIA’s members.
Smartnet director, Suzanne Roche, was appointed by the rest of the board while e-Centric Innovations principal, Kee Wong, was promoted to the role of deputy chair.
Wong replaced IBM CEO, Glen Boreham, who remains on the board.
