Former iiNet chief executive David Buckingham has joined the executive team of education provider Navitas as chief financial officer.
Mr Buckingham will fill the shoes of Bryce Houghton, who resigned from the position in September after 10 years at Navitas to become CFO at Slater & Gordon, which is in the midst of volatile trading times.
Mr Buckingham will begin in the new role in late January.
“David’s strong financial background, understanding of technology and business planning makes him a perfect addition to our leadership team,” Mr Jones said.
Directors Peter James, Louise McCann, Patrick O’Sullivan and Paul McCarney also resigned in August shortly before the merger, in-line with the terms of the acquisition, while chairman Michael Smith left in late September just after the acquisition.
Navitas closed 1.3 per cent higher to $4.48 each.
