Ex-Dimension Data executive secures new sales role at Kordia Solutions

24 May 18

Kordia Solutions New Zealand has a new head of sales, Glen White, who brings 17 years of experience in ICT to his new position.

Commencing 1 June this year, White brings a wealth of experience working with large customers across the telecommunications and broader ICT sector in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom to the role.

In the United Kingdom specifically, White worked for Virgin Media as a business consultant.

Prior to his role at Kordia Solutions, White also held positions at both Dimension Data New Zealand and Spark in which he was key to the delivery of client and business outcomes.

White joined Dimension Data in 2016 where he was head of digital transformation, which saw him lead a team responsible for growing the business through the acquisition of new customers while increasing the market share within existing accounts.

While at Spark, White held a number of senior roles including as a business manager, solutions sales specialist and as a strategic planning and operations manager. 

Kordia Solutions New Zealand’s head of sales and marketing, Matthew Madden, says White’s background makes him a highly valuable asset to the business.

“Glen brings an impressive level of experience and leadership to the role of Head of Sales,” explains Madden.

“His background […] will bring a fresh perspective to the team as we look to grow our Solutions business in the New Zealand market.”

“We very much look forward to having him on board here at Kordia.”

Glen will be based out of Kordia’s Auckland office.

The news of White’s appointment comes soon after the company announced a partnership Taitokerau Fibre Networks Limited (TFN), a Northland iwi-owned fibre network operator.

The agreement will see Kordia implement carrier-grade dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) on Taitokerau’s fibre assets that connects Auckland and Whangarei.

The upgrade will boost the capacity of the network while increasing service performance.
