New CEO for GPC NZ | GPC Electronics, 1 Dec 2003 [cached]
Frank Owen has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer of GPC Electronics in Christchurch, a fast-growing contract electronics manufacturer. In a classic case of reverse brain drain, Mr Owen comes to Christchurch from California, where he was Vice President and General Manager of Raychem Power Components, a major division of the multibillion-dollar global company Tyco International.
"Attracting Frank Owen to Christchurch is a real coup for GPC Electronics," says Christopher Janssen, GPC Electronics Group Managing Director.
The effort we have made in bringing Frank to Christchurch shows the importance we place on growing GPC Electronics in New Zealand and its place on the international manufacturing stage."
As Vice President and General Manager of Tyco's Raychem Power Components division, with manufacturing in Asia and North America and sales in over 30 countries, Frank Owen was responsible for the company's performance. The division recorded solid growth under Mr Owen's charge, including during the IT bust that followed the Internet boom of the late 1990s when most IT companies suffered sharp reductions in turnover and profit.
"Frank Owen's international experience will ensure GPC builds on its recent strong growth in New Zealand, to become a player in the global electronic manufacturing services industry."
Frank Owen says he is very excited about his move to Christchurch as it will allow him to balance his work and personal interests. "I am a huge fan of the outdoors lifestyle that Canterbury can offer, with the Southern Alps on one side, and the sea on the other," says Frank.
