Wilson & Horton chairman John Maasland and National Business Review publisher Barry Colman head competing companies but will work side by side as directors of Walker Wireless, the broadband wireless company providing high-speed internet access.

Mr Maasland and former Xtra general manager Bob Smith have been appointed to join Mr Colman.

Chairman Rod Inglis said the company's board members married knowledge of technology and the "new economy" with media content.

Walker is not commenting on speculation it is planning an IPO, believed to be aiming to raise $20 million.
