HP restructures ANZ operations

23 Jun 2010

Hamish Alexander has been named Country Manager for HP Imaging and Printing Group (IPG) in New Zealand.

Alexander’s main focus will be to provide an oversight for all the organisation’s activities in New Zealand, as well as having direct responsibility for Inkjet Web Solutions and LaserJet Enterprise Services.

HP also announced a restructure to its Imaging and Printing Group (IPG), Australia and New Zealand (South Pacific), with changes to its LaserJet Enterprise Services (LES) After Market Sales (AMS) categories.

“This restructure will split the AMS group, previously in charge of HP’s supplies business, between the Inkjet Web Solutions (IWS) and LES businesses, with all former AMS employees repositioned in either the LES or Sales Operations and Distribution teams,” the company said in a statement.

HP has also introduced a Sales Operations and Distribution (SOD) division, which sees the expansion of the former Sales Operations division to now include all distribution for tier one partners.

“The changes to the organisation will help align to a true printing system view under which the LES and IWS categories will have full responsibility for both supplies and hardware," said Richard Bailey, Vice President, IPG, HP South Pacific. “This will give the organisation a clear line of sight in driving world-class printing solutions for consumers through to large enterprise customers.”

Mal Wun will lead the new Sales Operations and Distribution division and Rob McCance has been appointed to Business Manager for LaserJet Enterprise Services.
