Kordia Group welcomes technology analyst and consultant Ben Kepes as a new director to its Board.

Kepes, who is a globally recognised expert in cloud computing, enterprise technology, and digital transformation, says he’s delighted at the opportunity to bring his vision and expertise to Kordia Group.

“It’s an exciting and crucial time for the technology and cyber security industry. With its recent acquisitions and focus on innovative solutions, Kordia is perfectly positioned to support New Zealand businesses and help them thrive in the modern world.

“I’m honoured to be a part of the next chapter of Kordia’s growth and look forward to working alongside the Board and leadership team to help drive further growth and success for the Group,” says Kepes.

In 2015, Kordia acquired award-winning cyber security consultancy Aura Information Security. Since then, the Group has expanded its offering in cyber security, cloud, and modern workplace solutions through the acquisitions of EMRGE, Base2, and most recently SecOps.

According to Kordia Group Chair, Sheridan Broadbent, Kepes’ experience will be uniquely beneficial to Kordia Group as it continues its upward journey as New Zealand’s most preferred provider of connectivity, cloud and cyber security services

“Ben brings vast experience in cloud and enterprise technology, which will be immensely valuable in guiding Kordia as it strengthens its position as New Zealand’s go-to technology business partner in today’s rapidly evolving landscape.

“His decision to join our board is a strong vote of confidence in our vision, strategy, and relentless focus on offering world-class risk management solutions for our customers’ most mission-critical services so they can thrive and grow,” says Broadbent.

Kepes brings over a decade of experience to Kordia Group. He has served on the advisory boards of technology companies and has previously won the Sir Peter Blake Leadership Award. He currently sits on the boards of several non-profit and privately held companies in New Zealand, including the Ᾱkina Foundation, UniMed, Pegasus Health, Cactus Outdoor and Paenga Kupenga Limited.
