After six months working as Lenovo’s New Zealand Distribution Manager, Pip Heath will be leaving both Lenovo and the country in the new year.
Heath, who recently joined Lenovo after leaving a long-term position at Toshiba will be relocating to Sydney for family reasons
Callum Eade, Lenovo Channel Director ANZ, who recruited Heath after having worked with her at Toshiba, says the company is very sad to be losing her.
“From our perspective, we’d love for Pip to join our Australian team and we’re looking into that at the moment, however, we haven’t secured anything yet.
“Once she and her family is settled in Australia I hope to lure her back to the realms of Lenovo Australia.”
In regards to Heath’s New Zealand-based Distribution Manager role, Eade says the company is in the process of recruiting and is considering both internal and external candidates for the role.
“We’re looking at making sure we have complete coverage of the New Zealand market, so we are looking at options, structurally, and we’re looking at people, and while we haven’t finalised a replacement, we will have absolute coverage on that account.”
“We need to find the right candidate. We are looking for the best person for the job.”
In the interim, James Arnold, Lenovo Tier Two and Education Account Manager will be working alongside Eade on the account.
Support will be aided by Lenovo’s remaining three Auckland and sole Wellington staff member, as well as the Sydney-based helpdesk.
