Shifting roles at top end integrators

Robin Hartendorp goes to Wellington for Gen-i, with Simon Gillespie takes over for him at Di-Data

Gen-i has appointed Robin Hartendorp to general manager for central government, a newly created role based in Wellington.

Hartendorp is moving from Dimension Data where he was CEO since 2000.

Gen-i announced the appointment almost at the same time that Dimension Data heralded his replacement, Simon Gillespie, in the CEO role. Gillespie has managed Dimensions Data’s Northern Region and business integration for the past two years.

“Gillespie has played a key leadership role in the organisation and has been groomed for this role," says Dilip Kumar, Dimension Data's Asia Pacific COO, in a statement. Kumar points to Gillespie's 19 years at the system integrator.

Both companies' statements indicate the shift in roles reflects new phases in their respective businesses.

Over at Gen-i, Hartendorp will be joined by Gen-i general manager for professional services, Murray Young, who will now work from Wellington on a permanent basis "to further strengthen the company’s senior presence in the Capital", the statement reads.

Kumar recognised Hartendorp's contribution to Dimension Data, which expanded by acquisition from a staff of 45 to over 550 and with revenue 10 times greater than when he started. Dimension Data's New Zealand operation sees revenues of $240 million.

Gen-i's operating revenue was $1.36 billion in the 12 months ending June 30, 2012.
