Dimension Data New Zealand has appointed Wayne Yarr to head up the local business, following chief executive Jo Healey’s departure earlier this year.
In his role as chief executive, Yarr is responsible for both the strategic management and operations of the business.
The role is a return to familiar ground for Yarr, who worked at Dimension Data for nearly 10 years until 2012, including a stint as director of global services, IT outsourcing and managed services. After Dimension Data took on a role as Avaya’s Europe and APAC cloud and managed services director, based in the United Kingdom.
More recently he was director of CCT sales and marketing for London’s Capita IT Enterprise Services.
Herbert Bockers, Dimension Data Asia Pacific COO, says Yarr’s leadership and experience in the ICT sector, along with a ‘strong track record of delivering exceptional results make him the ideal person to lead the company in the next exciting phase of its growth’.
Yarr says he’s happy to be back in New Zealand and rejoining Dimension Data New Zealand.
“I am impressed with the enthusiasm and commitment of the team. I am excited to be working together with them to help grow our clients’ businesses and deliver on the strategic vision of the company,” he says.
Yarr’s appointment follows the exit of Healey, who resigned earlier this year after two years in the top job.
