On 9 June 2017, IR commenced operations from its newest practice in Auckland, New Zealand. This practice is a clear signal of IR’s long-term commitment to both the New Zealand market and our client base worldwide with interests in New Zealand.
IR’s recently appointed NZ Manager, Marc Armitage is committed to ensuring our New Zealand public and private sector clients will have the same access to world-leading security advice and risk management that IR provides globally. The opening of a full-time practice in Auckland means IR’s clients will be able to access IRs services more readily, and access the depth of IRs talented staff pool based around the world. This practice also puts IR in a stronger position to respond in a timely manner to New Zealand based client needs.
