Wellington: The Indian-origin boss of InternetNZ, the group protecting and promoting the Internet in New Zealand, has announced his resignation.
Kumar will step down as chief executive of the firm at the end of the month when his term expires.
According to Stuff.oc.nz, he was as yet undecided on where he would go but said he had been "talking to a few people" and was open to anything new.
He will leave the organisation in good shape, the report said.
Over the past three years InternetNZ has doubled its membership and tripled its work output, without an increase in the operating budget.
According to the report, Kumar was instrumental in setting up the NetHui forums to discuss the shape and direction of the Internet, which he described as a "gamechanger for the way discussions are held".
