Multi-cloud and IT services provider CCL has appointed Donna Sanders to the newly-created position of Director Information Security and Operations.
Part of CCL’s senior leadership team, Sanders is responsible for the company’s security, technology operations and national fleet of data centres, leading multiple teams and 110-plus employees supporting CCL’s clients across both public and private sectors.
Appointed to the position following a short-term contract to spearhead a best practice program for CCL’s technology operations, Sanders formally joins CCL after 11 years with Datacom, most recently as General Manager – Platform Operations A/NZ, Datacom Cloud. She also played a key role in the provision of cloud services to government and held business unit management and technical services roles across the group during her tenure.
“I am thrilled to join the CCL leadership team and contribute to the work we do to keep many of New Zealand’s most important organisations running,” she said.
“Technology has never been more important for our clients, and we look forward to helping organisations navigate their ever-changing requirements, balancing the services they depend on today with the opportunities created by transformative technologies that continue to emerge.”
Heather Graham, CEO of CCL, said Sanders’ appointment came at a time when clients were thinking differently about the value they expected from their IT partners.
“Recent events continue to redefine how organisations work, and as a leading multi-cloud and IT services partner we know our clients trust us as custodians of their systems and data,” she said. “Scale, security, and speed are the forces shaping the services and technologies we offer our clients – and Donna has the required competencies and acumen to drive our capabilities forward.”
