Air New Zealand chief executive Rob Fyfe has joined the board of the body, bath and home fragrance provider backed by the founders of 42 Below.
Ecoya executive chairman Geoff Ross says both Mr
Fyfe along with Australia-based fashion designer Collette Dinnigan have accepted invitations to join the board of Ecoya.
Dinnigan trained in New Zealand and has spent her professional life building an international fashion label of the same name from Australia.
"Collette brings aesthetic and design skills to the board, both of which are vital in the home fragrance and body and bath categories. She has very successfully built an international brand based on design over the last 20 years," Ecoya chairman Geoff Ross says.
"She also knows retail with her own branded stores world-wide and she is partnered with many of the great retail chains globally including Barney's New York, Neiman Marcus and Harvey Nichols. Her proven skill set on the international stage is a perfect fit with our plans for Ecoya.
Ross says Fyfe is a great marketer and knows international marketing well. "He recognises the coming ‘green boom' and how business can benefit from this."
Prior to joining Air New Zealand, Mr Fyfe held a range of senior management positions both within New Zealand and overseas, including roles with the National Australia Bank, Bank of New Zealand, Telecom NZ and ITV Group in the UK.
Ecoya's other independent director is Rich Frank. Los Angeles-based Frank was previously president of Walt Disney Television and Paramount Television Group. He has a life time Emmy and is on the board of California home ware chain, Napa Style.
