Sage appoints new country manager for NZ, looks at partners

Business management software provider Sage Business Solutions has today announced Justin Robbins has been appointed to the role of New Zealand country manager. 

Robbins comes to the role following six years as a strategic sales director for Sage in South Africa.

In his new role, Robbins will be responsible for the development and operations of Sage Business Solutions in New Zealand, through client acquisition and optimising customer satisfaction with the Sage ERP X3, Sage 300 ERP, Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate and Sage CRM product suite.   “We are thrilled to have Justin leading our New Zealand operation,” says Mike Lorge, managing director, Sage Business Solutions. 

“There are a number of similarities between the South Africa and New Zealand operations, not least being the strong innovation mindset of both countries.”

Lorge says, “We are confident his experience there will lead to positive results for our New Zealand business. Justin also has intricate knowledge of our business products and solutions; he was the natural choice for this appointment.”   “New Zealand presents a number of business opportunities for Sage, and I’m excited at the prospect of bringing our proven products and solutions to the New Zealand market,” Robbins says. 

“We have a very solid partner ecosystem supporting our team here that gives us strong coverage across New Zealand and I look forward to further developing and strengthening our operations in partnership with them.”
