Partners to benefit from new SAP appointments

12 Apr 10

SAP New Zealand has made three new appointments to its operations based in Auckland and Wellington.

Phillippa Tait joins the business software provider as Account Executive focused on local government, telecommunications and manufacturing, and John Skelton takes up the role of Field Operations Manager. Both are based in Auckland. The Wellington appointment comes in the form of Michael Wray, who joins as Solutions Advisor focusing on the public sector.

Graeme Riley, SAP New Zealand Managing Director, said that its channel partners will come to benefit from the new appointments.

“I’m extremely pleased to have been able to attract people of the calibre of Phillippa, John and Michael to SAP. They all have impressive track records and strong relationships in the industry. I’m confident that our customers and partners will benefit from their knowledge and expertise.”
Towards the end of last year Auckland City Council said that it was seeing the benefits after implementing a fully-integrated SAP Human Resources Information System to better manage its 2300 employees.
