ICOM In New Zealand Changes Hands

ICOM In New Zealand Changes Hands

Sharon and I are writing to you inform you that after 23 years with the Dawson family, she has decided to sell ICOM Communications NZ limited and pursue other interests in Australia.

ICOM NZ was sold to RWB Communications, effective from Friday 28th April 2017.

Sharon looked for a buyer who shared the same family values and principles as her and her father (Dave) before her. She believes that the new owner Richard Binns will bring exactly that.

Richard has over 30 years’ retail management experience, latterly in senior roles within organisations within the UK, New Zealand and Australia.

There are no major changes planned for the business and we are both delighted that Simon Green, Justin Lewis, Deborah Wallbank and Peter Beekmans have agreed to move to the new business.

Priscilla Halstead will remain with us for the time being to ensure a smooth handover.

Unfortunately, Mike Anderson and Charlotte Brandreth will not be part of the team going forward.

The new business will trade as RWB Communications Limited and continues to be the exclusive distributor for ICOM products within New Zealand.

Other than updated bank account details and (if necessary) contracts/ agreements it will be business as usual.

Sharon and Richard want to thank you for your continued support for ICOM New Zealand and Richard is particularly looking forward to meeting you all in person and developing the ICOM brand and its products within New Zealand.


Kind regards,
Richard Binns & Sharon Dawson
