Kordia’s Board has appointed Neil Livingston, a current director, as interim Group CEO following the resignation of Kordia CEO Shaun Rendell. Livingston will assume the position on the 2nd April 2024.

He has held a number of Corporate Officer roles at leading organisations, including Ericsson, Vend, Foodcap, Endace, and Provenco Cadmus. Most recently he was CEO at Pingar.

“Neil is a seasoned executive with strong leadership and relationship building skills. His experience in the technology sector, and in high growth environments, will ensure he hits the ground running in the CEO role for Kordia,” says Sophie Haslem, Kordia Chair. 

As a board member, Livingston brought a strong strategic focus on operational and sales excellence to Kordia and was the Chair of the People, Wellbeing & Safety Committee. He says that he is looking forward to applying his leadership experience in the interim CEO role. 

“I’ve immensely enjoyed working with Kordia at a governance level and I am now excited to step in to lead the business through this time of transition. The business is ambitious, and I am committed to ensuring we continue to execute on the strategy and enhance value for customers, staff, community, and shareholders.”

Haslem confirms the board is in good hands with the six remaining directors. 

Rendell, who is currently on medical leave, resigned effective 1st April.  Jason Fullerton-Smith, Kordia’s Chief Operating Officer, will cover CEO duties until Livingston commences his appointment on the 2nd April.
