Awanui Group (previously Labtests) is a significant contributor to New Zealand’s healthcare system providing testing and diagnostic services for millions of patients. It is the largest provider of diagnostic testing nationally and has played an essential role in the country’s safety response during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Its core business under joint owners NZ Super Fund and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan has established a strong reputation for operational excellence. An existing strategy for organic growth has been successful to date but the priority now is to “super-charge” innovation, planning and execution to drive new and ancillary revenue and business streams with the establishment of the new role of Chief Commercial Officer.

Scott is charged with the responsibility for driving this enhanced initiative with urgency and impact. With a diverse background across Technology, Insurance and Oil & Gas, Scott draws on his work in strategy development, disruptive technologies and new product incubation and development to delivery new customer-led innovation.

After his early career in product development with Amazon and Microsoft, he emigrated to New Zealand from the United States and was appointed as Chief Innovation Officer of Z Energy to lead significant customer product and service developments. He was subsequently appointed as Group Executive GM for IAG’s Innovation & Venturing team.

Scott is delighted to join Awanui at this exciting time. He has history of in framing and delivering growth strategies that leverage core capabilities, skills and experience towards new frontiers.
