Renaissance makes key hire - Warwick Grey

23 Jul 2010

Renaissance has confirmed that Warwick Grey is its new Chief Marketing Officer.“Marketing is pivotal to the growth and transformation of Renaissance and I am delighted to have Warwick Grey, an innovative marketing executive with great talent and strong strategic thinking, join our team”, said Richard Webb, Chief Executive Officer of Renaissance Group. “Warwick is passionate about customers and technology and he has experience across a wide range of disciplines which will really help us transform Renaissance.”

Warwick and his brother Trevor have been involved in the Renaissance story since day one. They started the company and in the mid 90s sold the distribution business to CED. This transformed CED from simply the Apple distributor in New Zealand, to a multifaceted distribution business.

As The Channel reported earlier this month, Natalie Brown, a long-time marketing team member at Renaissance, was initially appointed as Chief Marketing Officer, but has recently resigned. Grey has held senior marketing roles at both Microsoft and HP, cultimating with his January appointment as Marketing Manager for South East Asia for the Personal Systems Group of HP.

This key hire surely will continue the improving morale reported here at the Auckland-based distributor.

“Renaissance is a New Zealand company with a unique position in the marketplace offering distribution, education, training and consumer solutions. This creates a great platform for growth into some of the newest areas of excitement in the IT market. I am looking forward to starting work with Richard and the management team to help further build a truly iconic New Zealand company,” said Grey.
