Margot McCutcheon

Having spent over 24 years in the Transport and Logistics Industry, I have seen the Internet, and technology in general, progress from a “toy” that was regarded with great suspicion to a valued business tool for transport and logistics companies and their customers – most of whom are still only realising its current potential let alone what a connected future might bring.

The last 9 years of consulting in the industry, and the management of the design, development and implementation of two major freight management systems, have given me an insight into the commercial opportunities available with high speed access to an open, uncaptured Internet, and the obvious benefits from an educational, community and social perspective.

I believe InternetNZ has a responsibility not only just to promote the Internet nationally, but also in working with associated bodies to ensure that all users, particularly community, educational and small business entities, have access to Internet services and are protected from unwanted “visitors”. I maintain a personal desire to ensure that hackers, spammers and similar undesirables are restricted in undertaking their activities via the Internet.

Janet Mazenier and myself have recognised the gap which exists between users of the internet and what internet suppliers are actually delivering.  We have formed a company “Fuse Communications” which launches on 1 August 2006.  We are both standing for Council as we passionately believe the internet can assist in the delivery of capability which is woefully lacking throughout regional NZ.

I live in Clevedon, have a recently acquired passion for travel, and am heavily involved in the sport of polo during the summer season.
