Market analyst IDC New Zealand has appointed several new staff members to its Auckland office, suggesting there is still activity in the IT industry in spite of the recession.
“We’re very pleased that we were able to further invest in our New Zealand team and extend on our local research and consulting capabilities,” says Ullrich Loeffler, IDC NZ country manager. “There’s no doubt that the global economy is facing challenging times and New Zealand is no exception. Nonetheless, IDC believes that the market still provides strong business opportunities to companies that pay attention to market insights and their business environments.”
The latest additions take IDC’s total New Zealand staff to 11. The new additions include senior analyst, telecommunications, Yael Lord; senior analyst, business enablement: IT services research, Rasika Versleijen-Pradhan; and sales executive Carl Ellish.
“Our recent appointments underline that IDC puts its money where its mouth is,” says Loeffler, “and we’re convinced that the additional experience and expertise will assist New Zealand companies in identifying and realising these opportunities.”
