Web hosting company Pacnet announced on Tuesday it has named Nigel Stitt the CEO of its Australia and New Zealand business. He will replace Deborah Homewood who is leaving the company to pursue new professional endeavors outside of the telecommunications and technology sector.

Under Homewood’s leadership, Pacnet Australia and New Zealand has been a significant contributor to the company’s overall achievements over the past 10 years.

Stitt has more than 21 years of IT and telecommunications experience, having served in a number of senior positions with Pacnet over the past 8 years, most recently national sales director for Pacnet Australia.

Since the launch of Pacnet in 2008, following the operational merger of Pacific Internet and Asia Netcom, Stitt has been instrumental in delivering double-digit growth for the company’s business across Australia.

“We are pleased to appoint Nigel to the helm of Pacnet’s Australia and New Zealand operations where he can fully utilize his industry expertise and business savvy in moving our local business into its next generation,” said Bill Barney, CEO of Pacnet.

Prior to joining Pacnet Stitt was general manager of Techcel/CNN Internet where he became a top revenue contributor after developing a business model integrating ISP offerings with its IT integration business.

Stitt has also held consultant and management positions with Forsythes Information Technology, Spear Technologies and Osborne Computers.

Headquartered in Hong Kong and Singapore, with offices in all key markets in Asia and North America, Pacnet provides integrated high-performance data delivery and hosting services via its EAC-C2C submarine cable network, connected data centers and global IP network.
