New boss for Infosys Australia and New Zealand

02 Feb 15

Indian technology outsourcing firm Infosys has announced the appointment of Andrew Groth as its new head for Australia and New Zealand, after Jacqueline Korhonen decided to take the top role at Melbourne-based SMS Management and Technology.

Headquartered in Melbourne, Infosys has offices across Australia and New Zealand. It opened its first office in New Zealand in Wellington in 2009. At the time, the company said the chose Wellington for its proximity to Infosys' major New Zealand clients, such as Telecom. 

“Our business in New Zealand has grown steadily over the last 12 months, so we wanted to be closer to the action," Korhonen said at the time. "New Zealand is an important market for us and we’ll be pursuing both new business and partnership opportunities in the New Year as well as continuing to service our existing clients." 

Korhonen held the role for just over six years from 2008 until her departure in December last year. 

The company says Groth will start in his new role immediately, charged with increasing the company’s A/NZ growth, in its third largest global market.

This is the first region chief named in the four months since Vishal Sikka took over as the first non-founder chief executive at Australia’s second largest software exporter.

Groth, who joined Infosys in 2010, will move into his new role on January 1 from being vice president, financial services, for Asia-Pacific region.

Based in Sydney, Groth joined Infosys in 2010 to head up the company’s Financial Services business in Australia and New Zealand.

Last month, Infosys announced it had won a deal from about 500 schools in Victoria to help them move to the Amazon Web Services cloud.
