OKI has appointed Chris Thorley as New Zealand Channel Manager, reaffirming the business printer manufacturer’s commitment to local resellers.
Based in Auckland, Thorley is tasked with supporting the company’s distributor and reseller network as well as identifying new potential partners to drive future growth among enterprise business organisations.
“OKI is delivering a winning formula for the region with a strong channel structure and expertise in helping businesses with their printer and consumables requirements,” adds Greg Mikaelian, Oceanic Region Sales Manager, OKI Data Australia and New Zealand.
“Adding to this will be Chris’ extensive experience in working with partners and customers, coupled with his depth of knowledge in driving business success.”
Thorley has more than 15 years’ experience in the printer industry working for both vendors and within channel-based organisations.
Previously General Manager of New Zealand for Kyocera Document Solutions Australasia, Thornily has also held brand marketing manager positions with OKI Data Australia, Comworth Technologies and Ingram Micro as well as sales management positions at Konica Minolta Business Solutions and Corporate Consumables.
“As companies in all markets grapple with digital business transformation and strive harder to drive innovation, I’m looking forward to deploying my experience and knowledge to enable OKI to strategically engage with our customers and partners,” Thorley adds.
As reported by Reseller News, OKI also recently appointed Dove Electronics as its new distributor in New Zealand, providing access to the full range of OKI products and consumables.
In distributing a range of IT products and services to a broad customer base throughout New Zealand, Dove Electronics operates from three locations in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
