Morcom joins SAP

Former Microsoft man Alex Morcom, who returned to New Zealand last month after a stint in Singapore, has resurfaced at SAP.

Morcom was manager of Microsoft New Zealand’s SMB division until November 2002 when he took up the role of regional director for the medium-sized business division at Microsoft’s Asia-Pacific head office in Singapore.

He had been at the local subsidiary for eight years, but will now be drawing on his SMB expertise to boost SAP's capabilities as its SMB manager for New Zealand.

Morcom assumed the role on Monday and replaces another former Microsoft staffer, business solutions manager Mansur Zwart, who joined SAP in March this year and has now moved to an Auckland-based SMB marketing role for the ANZ region.

SAP New Zealand managing director Ian Black says Morcom brings with him valuable experience in dealing with resellers that operate in the SMB market.

“We are pleased to have Alex on board. The value he brings is his knowledge and understanding of how to engage with the reseller channel, and how to make sure their needs are met and how we can function with them,” says Black.

SAP says it has doubled its number of channel partners since it entered the SMB market and believes Morcom’s experience will help boost its push into this sector, which it has highlighted as an area of growth in New Zealand.

Morcom’s appointment at SAP coincides with a decision to return to New Zealand for lifestyle reasons.
