CEO Andrew Allan appoints leadership team to extend company’s cloud and IT services leadership.
Seven executives from the ranks of Revera and CCL pre-merger have been appointed to the executive leadership team of the now merged entity, called CCL.
Joining CEO Andrew Allan at the top table is:
- COO – Sri Gazula, who held the same position at Revera
- CFO – Chris Fairfield, previously Revera CFO
- Troy Myer – Technical Director (formerly Revera General Manager Business Development)
- Cherie Roache – Director Southern Region (formerly CCL General Manager, Southern Region)
- Guy Inglis – Director Northern Region (formerly CCL General Manager, Northern Region)
- Rik Rogers – Director Client Delivery (formerly CCL General Manager Managed Services)
- Richard Hansen – Director Enterprise Sourcing (formerly CCL General Manager Strategy).
The company is currently recruiting for an executive to fill the role of Director Central Region.
“The formation of this team is a significant milestone in what is a new beginning for two established businesses,” said CEO Andrew Allan. “Now we can leverage our collective strengths to accelerate our success in cloud and IT services.”
Allan oversees more than 700 employees, in offices across Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Nelson, in additional to Blenheim, Dunedin, Invercargill and Queenstown.
“The merger was conceived to create a single organisation providing end-to-end IT management and cloud technology services unrivalled in New Zealand,” he said. “Work continues apace as we streamline processes, culture, and customer experience – the results of which will bubble to the surface without too much fanfare.”
Since announcing the merger late February, the company has maintained a head of steam, winning significant transformation project work for New Zealand’s primary workplace health and safety regulator WorkSafe and Children’s charity Barnados, as well was adding muscle in the public cloud arena with new accreditations from Microsoft and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Allan said the Spark-owned entity had full license to write its own rules for success but was remodelling aspects of its services portfolio to support Spark Group’s strategy in the cloud.
Jolie Hodson, Customer Director at Spark, said the new CCL was the best form to leverage the company’s investment in the two businesses – a move that effectively created Spark Group’s IT managed services and cloud delivery engine.
“We want to extend our position as arguably the leader of IT management and cloud technology services in the country,” she said at the time of the announcement. “Combining these two businesses delivers the seamless end-to-end services and expertise more clients demand, and ensures we put a panoptic lens to their businesses.”
