Blinkhorn quits Integral/Axon

Blinkhorn quits Integral/Axon

Former Integral/Axon director of customer engagement Catherine Blinkhorn has taken a break from the industry to look after her two children.

Blinkhorn says she intends to return to the sector in six months, but rules out rejoining Integral/Axon. She declined to comment on the reason for this.

“I am taking a break because my children are quite young and I also needed some time away from the industry.”

Blinkhorn had been at the company for three years and prior to it acquiring Axon in May, she was Integral’s sales and marketing director.

She began her career at IBM Australia in 2001, moving to New Zealand in 2004. She has also been systems and technology manager at IBM in New Zealand.

Integral Axon managing director Ray Noonan says he is sad to see Blinkhorn go and says her departure leaves a “big gap” at the company.

He could not confirm if she would be replaced.

“We are continually looking at our [employee] structure and considering what is the best go to market model for the future.”

According to its website, Integral/Axon has approximately 360 staff.

At the time of the acquisition, Axon had in excess of 250 staff, while Integral had about 130. In 2008, Integral predicted it would be a $50 million company by 2009.
