In 2014, Dr Quin was named a New Zealander of the Year by the New Zealand Herald for her role in testifying at the US trial of a terrorist involved in an attack on a tour group in Yemen. She was among the group of tourists taken hostage and wrote a best-selling book about the kidnapping that included how she tracked down and confronted the terrorist at a mosque in London.
Dr Quin will oversee general company direction and strategy, technology developments, and be a mentor for senior staff.
