Announcement from ‘Naut’ Director Lindsay Faithfull
I am pleased to announce that Fiona Bycroft will be moving to a full-time position in Naut in the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) from January 2023.
Naut was co-founded by Fiona and I in 2021, with myself being director/shareholder and Fiona holding the role of General Manager of Naut, while also retaining her role of Northland Regional Manager in McKay.
With Naut continuing its focus on product development and the increasing customer demand for bespoke projects, the time is right for Fiona to dedicate her time to Naut.
Fiona brings a wealth of experience as an influential, decisive, and respected senior leader who has demonstrated success at managing start up businesses, as well as turning around underperforming business units. Fiona has demonstrated her commitment to supporting and developing the team, with a passion for diversity and inclusion, and utilising this to deliver the company goals.
In the short time since Naut’s start up, I have already been highly impressed with the ability of Fiona and the team to generate significant opportunities and sales in such a small time.
