Steve Cotter starts new CEO role at GÉANT
09 November 2015 | Amsterdam & Cambridge
Following an announcement in August, GÉANT is delighted to formally welcome Steve Cotter to his new role as CEO. Fresh from his 11,000 mile trip from New Zealand, Steve has been busy meeting staff at the Amsterdam and Cambridge offices, and immersing himself in GÉANT’s numerous activities.
Steve will be responsible for creating and executing the organisation’s strategic vision, through streamlining GÉANT’s day to day operations, strengthening relationships with NRENs and the European Commission, and developing major international collaborations.
He also sees this as a unique opportunity to position GÉANT as the undisputed world leader in its field. Just as important, Steve says, “It’s a chance to ignite a sense of excitement within the organisation, making GÉANT a fun, invigorating, thought-provoking place to work. I have always believed in building a strong sense of community within every organisation where I’ve worked and cohesion, at this juncture, is a critical component to GÉANT’s success.”
Steve leaves behind a far stronger REANNZ, where he was CEO for 4 years, a role now taken on by Nicole Ferguson.
Welcome to GÉANT, Steve!
