27 Aug 13

Motorola Solutions has appointed Steve Crutchfield as managing director, Australia and New Zealand, effective immediately.

Stepping into the role vacated by Gary Starr, who was earlier this year promoted to vice president, Crutchfield will be responsible for a number of key countries in the Asia Pacific and Middle East region, including Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and India.

Prior to this appointment, Crutchfield was general manager of Motorola Solutions’ Services Delivery organisation across ANZ.

“Steve has been a key member of our senior leadership team here in Australia and New Zealand, and I have no doubt we will continue to benefit greatly from his experience and strong customer focus," Starr says.

"He has been a great mentor to our team over the past six years, and understands the critical factors necessary in the successful design and delivery of complex communication solutions.”

Prior to joining Motorola Solutions, Crutchfield held the position of director of Desktop Solutions for McAfee globally and was based in Portland, Oregon, before moving back to Australia to assume responsibility for sales, business development and strategic alliances as McAfee’s SME director in the Asia Pacific.
