Butchers trades Lenovo for agri-tech group

Butchers trades Lenovo for agri-tech group

Lenovo country manager Dean Butchers is leaving Lenovo after 14 years to become general manager of global sales at agri-tech company Tru-Test Group.

Butchers says he was headhunted for the new role and that working for Tru-Test holds a strong appeal for him. “It’s a New Zealand organisation with a leadership role in the agri-tech industry. The technology they’ve applied in agricultural-based products was of particular interest to me. It’s a great opportunity and an interesting challenge.”

Until Lenovo appoints a new country manager, Butchers' role will be shared between the vendor's Australian-based director of small business and consumer, Callum Eade, and A/NZ sales director Paul Richardson. Butchers would not be drawn on whether any restructuring may be involved.

"Lenovo has provided me with fantastic career opportunities ... and I’ll continue to follow the fortunes of my friends and former colleagues with great interest," he says.
