Oz alignment drives TelstraClear consolidation

Oz alignment drives TelstraClear consolidation

TelstraClear is to merge its Large Enterprise team with IT services subsidiary Sytec in a bid to more closely align its business with Telstra in Australia.

The merger will result in a new team, renamed Enterprise and Government, which will come into effect in July. It will be jointly led by head of large enterprises Mark Wilson, who joined TelstraClear from Telstra last August and former Sytec head John Bone.

“We’re trying to align to the way they do business in Australia,” Bone says, adding that joint projects with Telstra are on the increase. “Those synergies are already unfolding.”

Telstra’s corporate business falls under the Enterprise and Government banner too.

Under the merger, Bone says the combined staff will number about 300, with 220 from Sytec.

Wilson says he can see “huge benefits” by aligning more closely with Telstra. “It’s increasing our ability to leverage off them. The changes will equip us with the ability to better utilise their expertise to the benefit of trans-Tasman and New Zealand customers.”

TelstraClear acquired Sytec, provider of outsourced managed and professional IT services, at the end of 2004 in a deal worth $12 million. The purchase also included Sytec subsidiary DMZGlobal, a managed security provider.

The move came months after telco rival Telecom bought Gen-i for $62.5 million and Computerland for $26 million.
