CEO named Flying Kiwi

Nov 24, 2009

Imarda's CEO Selwyn Pellett was named one of two recipients of the Tait Radio Communications' Flying Kiwi Awards at a breakfast in Wellington on 19 November. Along with fellow recipient Rod Drury, Pellett gains immediate entry into the Tait NZ Hi-Tech Hall of Fame, joining founding member Sir Angus Tait and previous recipients Neville Jordan, Sir Woolf Fisher & Maurice Paykel, Sir Peter Maire, Bill Gallagher, Trevor Eagle, Ian Taylor, Dennis Chapman and Sir Gil Simpson.

"It is the highest honour our high tech industry bestows upon an individual," says NZ Hi-Tech Trust chair Wayne Norrie. "You need to have shown inspiration, innovation and leadership over a sustained period of time to be considered. This year over 150 industry leaders were asked to put forward their nominations for the Tait Flying Kiwi award, resulting in some 30 individuals being nominated of whom the two recipients were considered to be most deserving of the title."

Frank Owen, Managing Director of Tait Radio Communications said, "Rod and Selwyn are both truly inspirational business leaders and are making an enormous, ongoing, contribution to New Zealand's technology industries. They are deserving of this award and will continue to inspire young entrepreneurs to even greater heights."
