Infosys targets market growth with new A/NZ Regional Head hire

New Regional Head replaces Jacqueline Korhonen who held the role for just over six years until her departure in December 2014.

Infosys has appointed Andrew Groth as the new Regional Head for Australia and New Zealand, replacing Jacqueline Korhonen who held the role for just over six years until her departure in December 2014.

With 30 years’ experience in the technology industry across multiple sectors, Groth will be responsible for leading strategy and growth for the $8.3 billion company in the AU/NZ market – its third largest market globally.

Groth joined Infosys in 2010 to head up the company’s Financial Services business in Australia and New Zealand, where he significantly grew relationships with the region’s major financial institutions.

Over the years he has taken on additional roles within Infosys, including Head of Financial Services – Asia Pacific, and most recently as Head of Enterprise and Industry Services.

Prior to Infosys, Andrew was a Senior Vice President at Genpact based in London, where he led the growth of the business and its customer relationships across the EMEA region.

Previously, Andrew spent 19 years at CSC in a broad range of roles, including the strategic development of its large-scale sourcing, systems integration and consulting business.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
