Lenovo strengthens NZ channel plans with new recruit
Lenovo has announced they have recruited local industry veteran Mike Hill to lead its New Zealand business, in a move the company says reinforces its commitment to the local channel.
In his new role as country manager, Hill will be responsible for all aspects of Lenovo’s New Zealand business and sales strategy, driving business growth, and strengthening all of its New Zealand offerings.
Matt Codrington, managing director of Lenovo, ANZ, says Hill’s appointment echoes Lenovo’s increased focus and investment in New Zealand and its channel partners, following the Lenovo Live events held in Wellington and Auckland in April.
“We are proud to welcome such an established and well-regarded Kiwi ICT veteran to the Lenovo team,” Codrington says.
“New Zealand is a substantial part of our business in ANZ and with Mike’s extensive expertise and long-standing relationships we are excited to continue expanding throughout the country,” he explains.
"This appointment strengthens our local commitment to the channel in New Zealand by adding a substantial on-the-ground presence,” Codrington says.
“Mike will be instrumental in leading a dedicated approach in New Zealand that will include further allocation of marketing, supply chain and technical support resources to our partners there.”
Hill will take up the role from 20 June, after serving as sales manager for Fujitsu New Zealand’s Platforms business.
Hill previously held the country manager for Dell New Zealand where he was responsible for building and executing the country strategy, resourcing, governance, and business growth.
