Montoux offers heartfelt congratulations to its Chief Operating Officer Toni Moyes, who was recently appointed to the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
The ABAC consists of business leaders from each of the APEC countries and provides guidance to APEC leaders on how to implement the APEC work programme from a business perspective. New Zealand is hosting the next APEC in 2021 and will Chair ABAC for the host year.
Being identified as a New Zealand business leader and appointed to this prestigious council is an opportunity to represent New Zealand’s interests on the world stage. Prime Minister Adern expressly stated her interest in a diverse and balanced representation on ABAC to ensure the advice the council produces can assist the Government as it works with the business community to strengthen New Zealand’s economy.
The Prime Minister said she is confident that Toni and her fellow appointees, Rachel Taulelei and Malcom Johns, “will do us proud and provide strong business input New Zealand businesses in the APEC community.”
Montoux is immensely proud of Toni’s contributions and achievements at Montoux as well as her prior work. In addition to her work as Montoux’s COO, Toni is the co-creator of Leading Ladies, which supports women in leadership through peer mentoring groups and is paving the way for more women to hold leadership positions in business.
Montoux’s co-CEO and co-founder Klaas Stijnen says, “I can’t think of a better person of such a high calibre to be appointed to this Council. Toni has a wealth of knowledge and experience and inspires us, not only at Montoux, but within the New Zealand business and tech community.”
