Foodstuffs triumphs at CIO Awards

Foodstuffs, last night, triumphed at the Chief Information Officer (CIO) Awards winning the CIO and the Executive Team of the Year. 

The CIO of the Year Awards are part of the CIO Summit which is being held in Auckland this week. The Awards are made up of five categories, recognizing individuals and teams who have shown leadership, innovation and foresight in their contribution to ICT (Information Communication Technology) and business.

Peter Muggleston from Foodstuffs North Island Ltd was awarded CIO of the Year at last night’s ceremony. Muggleston was selected as CIO of the Year from a very high calibre of finalists from a range of industries including maritime, transport, healthcare and government.

The judges identified Muggleston as winner who demonstrated innovation and success over the last 12 months. He reinforced the transformational role of the CIO while supporting the Foodstuffs North Island overall business strategy.

Murray Jordan, Managing Director, Foodstuffs North Island says Muggleston’s award as CIO of the Year is very well deserved.

Jordan says, “Peter has impeccably balanced the complexities of preparing for leading and implementing long-term transformational change in our business with the daily imperative of consistently delivering the information and technology we require to serve our 1.3 million customers with their everyday shopping needs – every single day.”

“He has consistently continued to inspire and deliver in an increasingly challenging and complex environment at Foodstuffs and has delivered at every level. We are very proud of his achievement,” says Jordan.

Muggleston wasn’t the only Foodstuffs winner of the evening; the Foodstuffs South Island Ltd team took home the Executive Team of the Year Award for its strategic use of business technology. 

Steve Anderson, CEO, Foodstuffs South Island said that this Award was won for successfully establishing and launching the South Island’s New World Club Card project.

Anderson says, “This is a phenomenal achievement for us as we had to bring a variety of teams together, adjusting respective priorities and constraints and handling change management requirements.”  

“I would like to thank all staff involved in the project, our National Marketing Team and New World Owners and their staff; without their active participation and encouragement the project would not have been such a resounding success,” he says.
