Fiona Wilson

Chief Executive Officer

I’ve held CIO, Director and Executive Director roles in major organisations, on both sides of the Tasman. My background in Computer Science and Statistics sits well with my passion for evidence based decisions and the use of technology to improve businesses.

I enjoy working with businesses looking for change, having worked with start-ups and transformations, implemented new business units and services, and developed and implemented organisation wide strategies. It’s pretty clear to me, there isn’t any “business as usual”, “steady as she goes” any more.

I help businesses to learn new things about themselves, their markets and customers through data and insights, and to put those insights into action.

A scientist by training, I’ve led enough large organisations to know that the people factor is as important as any technology in driving business change and success.

Data insights might show you the direction to take, but leaders and people get you there. If this resonates I’d love to chat.  Contact me fiona.[email protected]

Coster Zayd

Senior Business Analytics Consultant

I’m in my element when dealing with technology or exploring the makeup of things. I have a strong background in Computer Science and a real passion for helping people use technology to improve their business. I enjoy bridging the gap between business and IT.

I help businesses increase the uptake and adoption of analytics to deliver the value that well-reasoned, data driven decisions can provide. Before moving to Webranz, I spent four years enhancing contact centre performance and customer experience for a global medical products company by providing access to previously undiscovered data.

At Webranz I lead Adoption Services and work with some of the largest organisations in the country helping them to drive their adoption of analytics. My life plan B involves starting New Zealand’s first dog café nestled away in greenery. If you like brunches, IT, analytics or dogs, we should probably talk!

I am probably now classed as an IT veteran so bring the wealth of experiences I have accumulated throughout my career to help clients architect and design new solutions.

I consider myself to be a large organisation specialist having worked with some of New Zealand’s largest corporates. I am well acquainted with the business models and complexities of these large organisations as well as with the enterprise systems they typically use to support their businesses.
