Country manager Brace quits Lenovo

Lenovo is on the hunt for a new country manager following the resignation of Karen Brace.

Brace took on the management role in mid-2005 after Lenovo’s acquisition of IBM’s PC Division. She had managed this division for two years prior to the buyout.

She says she will take some time out before considering career options.

The decision to leave wasn’t sudden. “It was always the plan to see out the financial year [at Lenovo],” she says.

Australia New Zealand managing director Alan Munro says Brace left Lenovo on 2 April to pursue other opportunities.

He says the company is currently seeking a replacement.

“Lenovo is in the process of reviewing both internal and external candidates for the role and will announce [an appointment] as soon as possible.”

In the meantime, Dean Butchers is acting general manager for New Zealand.

He is the transaction partners director for Asia Pacific and has been in the PC industry for 20 years.
