Asia Pacific News People

NEW ZEALAND — Ant Franklin, the founding director of market research technology company, Infotools, has been appointed as its first ever CEO.


Franklin will be based at its New Zealand headquarters with a remit to evolve and grow the business. The company said it had faced challenges recently with record-high exchange rates and greater competition among technology companies in this space.  

“Ron Stroeven and I started Infotools in 1990. We now have close to 180 people stretched around the world, with operations in four continents, and partnering with some of the largest multinationals as clients,” said Franklin. “We have built a rock-solid team and are well-positioned to reach the goals we have set for ourselves.”
