A graceful transition: Figure.NZ’s Lillian Grace on why she’s stepping down and launching a new venture, Figure Group
After seven years running a charity that helps New Zealanders find and access data for free, Figure.NZ founder and CEO Lillian Grace is stepping down to create a new company called Figure Group. The business will explore what Figure.NZ couldn’t do within its charitable mandate, while also seeing how businesses and individuals can use data in a more meaningful way that puts people at the centre, rather than tools and processes. Grace has a chat about what the changes mean, her vision for Figure Group and what her next steps are.
