Andrea Scown, so far Chief Operating Officer at Mitre 10 New Zealand, is now Chief Executive Officer of the cooperative.

Mitre 10 New Zealand confirms that Chief Operating Officer Andrea Scown will lead the business forward as Chief Executive Officer following the resignation of outgoing CEO Chris Wilesmith.

With his family at home in Australia, Chris Wilesmith has faced ongoing uncertainty around the ability to base himself in the New Zealand office due to Covid. The continuing unknowns around Trans-Tasman travel have led to this decision.

According to the company, this appointment is significant for Mitre 10 for two reasons: it is the first internal appointment made to the CEO role and the first time the co-operative will have a female chief executive.
