New CFO for New Zealand Post
Michael Boersen has been appointed Chief Financial Officer at New Zealand Post, with effect from 9 May.
Boersen has previously held senior leadership roles at Auckland District Health Board, TR Group Ltd and Southern Cross Healthcare Group.
He has also held positions as Finance Director, and subsequently Chief Executive at Radius Health Group Limited, and most recently as Chief Financial Officer and then as Chief Executive at Yellow Pages Ltd.
New Zealand Post’s Chief Executive David Walsh said Michael Boersen’s experience with Yellow, through some commercially challenging times, makes him very well suited to join the business.
“Michael focused on improving operational performance and efficiency of the business through the decline of its print, and growth of Yellow’s digital revenues,” said Walsh.
“Here at NZ Post we are also facing challenges with a huge uptake in e-commerce and parcels being sent, while letters are in decline. Michael’s experience will be invaluable as our business faces these challenges and adapts to being a commercially sustainable business, committed to staying in New Zealand communities for the long term.”
Walsh also thanked John van Woerkom for the role he has played in the last twelve months as NZ Post’s acting Chief Financial Officer.
