In memoriam: Paul Douglas, a man of tremendous intellect and sense of humour

21 Sep 18

Paul Douglas will be missed.

For the last ten years he has supported the wider IBM New Zealand team. He has touched the lives of New Zealand’s channel community, his customers, and even those who did not know him personally. 

Now it is time to reflect on the stories and successes Paul brought to everyone as we bid farewell.

These words from IBM New Zealand managing director Mike Smith shared these words about Paul.

“Paul Douglas was an outstanding and well respected contributor to IBM New Zealand’s Global Technology Services division for more than ten years, most recently in the role of Sales Manager, Infrastructure Services and Technical Support Services team leader. 

His colleagues, friends, clients, channel partners and members of the wider community have remarked on his tremendous intellect and sense of humour, his leadership style and enthusiasm for his work, his loyalty to and personal connection with people from all walks of life, as well as his love and pride for his family. 

He is dearly missed by the IBM New Zealand team and we are supporting his family through this difficult time."

Rest in peace, Paul.
