Google has appointed Caroline Rainsford (above, right) as the new country manager for Google New Zealand, replacing Stephanie Davis, who took up a new role with Google Singapore last month.

Rainsford will join Google from Latitude NZ (previously GE Capital), where she is currently marketing & product director. Prior to this, she spent five years in the Middle East, Turkey and Africa with Philips Royal Electronics as regional marketing director.

“I am very excited to be joining the Google New Zealand team,” she said. “It’s an exciting time for Kiwi businesses and consumers, and I am looking forward to be working with our partners to help them succeed in their digital strategies.”

Sydney-based Google Australia & NZ managing director Jason Pellegrino said: “Caroline is the ideal candidate to lead our operations and team in New Zealand.

“In addition to bringing extensive international experience, as an Aucklander, she has in-depth knowledge and understanding of Kiwi businesses and consumers. We look forward to welcoming her to the Google team.”

Caroline Rainsford will take up her position at Google New Zealand later in the spring.
