23 Sep 2010

Paul Boshoff has taken on the role of Country General Manager for the Personal Systems Group at HP New Zealand.

The move is effective immediately and Boshoff will be responsible for the PSG team and driving the strategies for all PC products, including desktop computers, notebooks and pocket PCs.

He will also oversee HP's interactions with its channel partners to create “beneficial relationships that help to deliver more value to customers”.

Janice Cox, Vice President and General Manager, Personal Systems Group (PSG) HP South Pacific, said, “The New Zealand team is sure to enjoy working alongside Paul and I am confident that under his guidance, we’ll continue to deliver solid results.”

Boshoff replaces Brent Kendrick, who has transferred to Singapore with HP to take up a role as Commercial Channel Director for APJ.

HP has also detailed three new appointments to its networking team in New Zealand.

Revel Arlington and Glenn Owen have taken on roles as HP Networking Business Development Managers and Rick Bracewell has been appointed as a Solution Architect for HP Networking.

Jeff Healey, Enterprise Sales Lead, HP Networking, Asia Pacific and Japan says: “HP is transforming the networking industry in New Zealand. Our portfolio combines the best of HP ProCurve and 3Com to provide an advanced network fabric that offers customers a simpler, more efficient and more flexible networking solution. HP networking is a cornerstone of HP’s Converged Infrastructure strategy that eliminates silos of servers, storage and networking to create virtual pools of resources designed to optimally run business services."
