Equinox expands to Auckland

WELLINGTON-based software architect Equinox is gearing up for a year of expansion with the opening of an Auckland office this month.

Nigel Walker, formerly Auckland regional sales specialist for IBM’s Rational Software brand, has been recruited to manage the office.

“Currently we have three consul-tants working in Auckland but we’ll implement an aggressive growth stra-tegy over the next 12 months to recruit more senior consultants,” he says.

Walker says that having a presence in Auckland will give the company room for expansion, which may lead to the opening of an Australian office.

“Australia would be the next logical step. In fact, we’ve got an opportunity going on right now that we could use to leverage ourselves over there.”

While Walker can’t comment on who the client is, other Auckland-based clients include Air New Zealand, Fonterra and Telecom.

Equinox MD Roger Dalgleish says Walker is ideally suited to lead the company’s expansion into the Auckland market.

“He has extensive experience working with the Auckland offices of some major companies, providing and implementing IBM Rational software tools and processes,” he says.

Dalgleish says the company has had an ongoing need over the last three years to provide services in Auckland.

“Companies in Auckland like to deal with people that are based there, so it was only a matter of time before we got the infrastructure in place to expand.”

As an IBM business and education partner, Equinox is the only New Zealand education provider for Rational Software and Walker says the company is committed to the Java and dotnet markets.

“All of our consultants are based in customer sites; we’re not doing our job properly if they’re in our offices. The way we grow in the marketplace is by doing a lot of knowledge transfer to our clients.”
