CodeBlue has announced the appointment of Brent White as the company's new general manager, Wellington, to lead the lower North Island team.
White was formerly Palmerston North Council information manager and, prior to that role, worked as GM of Managed Services at Fujitsu, regional head of Solutions Delivery at Gen-i and manager of Infrastructure Services at Computerland New Zealand. “We are delighted that Brent has accepted the leadership role at CodeBlue in Wellington. We particularly value his experience in developing and managing an IT strategy for Palmerston North City Council. This gives him a unique perspective on what really matters to a customer, and an ability to understand the challenges they face and respond accordingly. His experience from Computerland in managing a very rapidly growing IT services business will also be invaluable as CodeBlue goes through a similar growth dynamic in the Wellington market,” says CodeBlue's executive director Ken Davis Brent White says he has kept track of CodeBlue’s growth over the years and is excited to now be a part of the plans to grow the business in Wellington. “It’s a challenge building a company into a successful market player but it is something I have done effectively before. In choosing CodeBlue, I knew I’d be coming into an organisation that is really prepared for growth,” says the new GM. He sees a big gap in the Wellington market for the services provided by CodeBlue. “There are very few IT managed services providers who truly provide enterprise-level IT services for smaller to medium sized companies. Many firms say they do, but they don’t deliver – whereas CodeBlue does." He adds that "a lot of businesses in this region are not getting the level of service they should expect".
