Fast growing Kiwi tech start-up Tether – which designs and manufacturers monitoring systems that enable safe, healthy and comfortable living, learning and work environments – has appointed Bevan Adin and Stephen Reid to the board of the company.

Tether CEO Brandon Van Blerk said the appointments of Adin and Reid will boost the tech start-up’s ‘big business’ experience and commercial capability at a board level.

“The board appointments come at a time when the New Zealand Government is on the verge of rolling out healthy home regulation, and when schools are also starting to focus on quality learning environments.

“Tether, with its EnviroQ range of large-scale monitoring systems, is perfectly positioned to offer the market a science based, accurate and continuous measurement suite which will enable those responsible for healthy indoor environments in homes, workplaces and schools, meet their compliance obligations with data they can trust.”

Van Blerk said the technology – already in use by Housing New Zealand and Tamaki Regeneration – does away with the need for inspectors and manual based assessments, which ultimately leads to conflict and higher costs.

Bevan Adin

Former Managing Director for Beam Suntory NZ, General Manager Licensed for Coca-Cola Amatil NZ and current Head of Sales for Goodman Fielder, Bevan Adin brings to the board of Tether the experience and expertise gleaned from a long career in leadership, sales, and commercial partnering in the FMCG sector.

Adin said that, “Every New Zealander should have the right to live, work and learn in a comfortable and healthy environment, and I look forward to using my broad experience from different organisations, countries and sectors to help achieve that”.

Stephen Reid

Having worked for the last 15 years in large commercial property ownership, management and development businesses, Reid brings an understanding of the financial and health benefits to be gained from healthy home and work environments.

“To be involved in a business producing a revolutionary solution, at an affordable price, in the residential and commercial space is exciting and overdue given the high level of poor living and working environments across New Zealand,” Reid said.

The current Chief Financial Officer at Development Advisory Services and a member of the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee at the Property Institute of New Zealand, Reid is a chartered accountant with considerable experience in governance, finance, accounting and tax. His past experience includes Chief Financial at Officer Esrkine + Owen and NPT Limited.
