Auckland-based network management company Mako Networks has appointed an experienced financial manager to the newly-created dual role of CFO/COO.


Paul Biegel comes to Mako Networks from commercial LED lighting supplier Ecopoint Limited. His other roles include CFO/GM Commercial for wine retailer Glengarry Hancocks, and senior manager for Deloitte, where he worked for 13 years.


Bill Farmer, CEO of Mako Networks, says the company is entering a period where Biegel’s skills will be needed ‘to assist in guiding the company’s direction’.


"With his analytical expertise,” Farmer says, "Mako will be better able to plan and respond to the company’s growth for the next several years.


"Paul has joined us at the right time, and it’s rare to have an executive with his credentials available to join the team.”
