Nigel Stoke, Chairman of The Executive Connection (TEC) in Australia and New Zealand, today formally welcomed the organisation’s new CEO, Stephanie Christopher.
Stephanie is an accomplished business leader with over 15 years’ experience in the corporate sector, positioning her well to lead TEC, part of the world’s largest CEO network.
“At the heart of every successful business are its people,” Nigel Stoke said.
“Stephanie’s broad experience harnessing and building talent within organisations are critical skills for both TEC and our network and we look forward to all learning a great deal under her leadership.
“With an MBA from Deakin University and over 15 years’ experience in Australian corporate human capital, we are thrilled to have her leading TEC,” Mr Stoke said.
“I firmly believe the key to success for any organisation is a true understanding of the talent needed to achieve its objectives,” Stephanie Christopher said.
“A true leader can identify, engage and develop talent at an individual and organisational level while ensuring that there is a balance between developing and sharing a vision, and the execution to achieve it.

“I am thrilled to be joining such a dynamic and important organisation,” Ms Christopher said.
