Intergen picks northern regional manager

Wellington-based IT services provider Intergen has appointed Michael Murphy as its new northern regional manager.

Murphy joins the company from HP where he was the channel manager for enterprise storage, servers and networking.

“As Intergen’s Auckland figurehead, Michael will have responsibility for the leadership, growth and overall success of Intergen’s Northern region,” says company CEO Tony Stewart. “He will work closely with Intergen’s leadership team throughout New Zealand, driving company strategy at a local level, nurturing the team and ensuring the delivery of first-rate services to Intergen’s customers.”

Murphy was one of around 50 applicants who applied for the position and was subjected to a rigorous recruitment process that involved using an external consultant for initial screening interviews. Candidates that progressed to the shortlist were interviewed by eight members of the company’s leadership team then sent through psychometric testing.

According to a statement by the company, Murphy has held positions at Andersen Consulting, Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers, IBM and CGNZ.

“[Murphy] brings a wealth of experience in professional services,” Stewart says in the statement. “We are very pleased to have [him] on board and, with the support of our Northern Leadership Team, we look forward to continued strong growth and success in the northern market.”

Murphy replaces Shaun Donaghey who left the company on February 24, according to Intergen. Donaghey is now the general manager of sales and marketing for Direct Payment Solutions. Murphy starts his role on April 6.

The appointment comes as Intergen looks to expand its business in the North Island, especially in Auckland. In a February 4 article in Reseller News, Stewart said that Intergen was aiming for at least 20 percent revenue growth this financial year and that the company has grown at between 25 and 30 percent annually, except in 2010 when it fell by about 10 percent.

Donaghey had served in that role since Intergen opened its Auckland office in 2002, Stewart told Reseller News. The office grew to 45 people by the beginning of 2011. The company has been recruiting nationally with staff now at 260 in six locations across the country.
