Ingram Micro New Zealand has appointed former Distribution Central NZ boss Stewart Williams to its Lenovo team.
Williams takes on the role of Ingram Micro New Zealand senior business development manager for Lenovo.
Jason Langley, Ingram Micro New Zealand senior general manager, says “Stewart brings with him invaluable data centre and infrastructure experience, gained through many years in distribution and, in particular, having lead Distribution Central through a significant growth phase before leaving in 2016.”
Williams has also held senior sales and management positions on the distribution side with Emerson, where he was New Zealand channel manager in 2016, IBM, Acer/Hitachi Data Systems, Health Benefits and Value Added Distributors.
He has also held technical and pre-sales consulting roles with organisations including Telecom, Auckland City Council, Fletchers, Vero and Goodman Fielder.
Williams says it’s an exciting time to be joining Lenovo at Ingram Micro.
“Lenovo software-defined data centres Think Systems and Think Agile are a great fit for lines of business that need apps that enhance customer experience and a self-service marketplace environment,” Williams says.
“Ensuring data is highly available, while not compromising security, is the challenge I am looking forward to. Effectively empowering our business partners for the future to ensure success for their customers across the territory.”
Langley says Williams cross-tier channel relationships, combined with his focus on delivering value-based solutions with measurable business outcomes adds significant additional strength to the distributor’s Lenovo team, for the benefit of all its channel partners.
