Guy has worked across so many sectors of the industry: retail, the reseller channel, distribution, solution sales, consulting, engineering and services and has a proven record of delivering value to those different industries”, said Richard Webb, Chief Executive Officer of Renaissance Group.

Over the past 20 years McKee has worked in a variety of roles at a variety of organisations including Statistics NZ, Lion Nathan, Fujitsu, CLEAR Communications and Telecom New Zealand.

McKee added, “I started my Apple journey in the 1980’s with a Newton MessagePad while at the same time I learned Unix on mainframes, mini systems and desktops. It’s exciting to see the device, OSX, iOS4 and Internet stories coming together in such a compelling way.”
