​Partners in mind as Schneider Electric hires new Pacific IT chief

“My aim is to continue Schneider Electric’s success in the IT Business as we are driven by a new scale and speed of digitisation."

Schneider Electric has appointed Joe Craparotta as Vice President of Schneider Electric’s IT Business in the Pacific zone, while also stepping into the newly created role of Vice President of Strategic Customers and Segments, Pacific.

As VP for the IT Business, representing the APC by Schneider Electric brand and Schneider Electric’s data centre solutions, Craparotta will draw on his 20 years of knowledge in the sector, having experienced many of the technological convergence shifts seen in the industry to date.

Craparotta will also bring new expertise to the position from his previous role as VP of Schneider Electric’s Energy Business in Australia.

“Innovation in the IT space has long been a passion of mine so I’m thrilled to take on this new position and look forward to working with a range of talented technology professionals,” Craparotta says.

“My aim is to continue Schneider Electric’s success in the IT Business as we are driven by a new scale and speed of digitisation.”

In addition to this, Craparotta will also establish and lead Schneider Electric’s Strategic Customers & Segments team.

For Craparotta, the team is an “important component” of Schneider Electric’s continued commitment to provide strategic partners with premier service and expertise to support them to remain agile and achieve sustainable growth.

“We understand our partners operate within a rapidly changing technology landscape and this can create an uncertain future,” Craparotta adds.

“For this reason we are dedicated to working with our partners closely throughout this evolution and equip them to remain competitive leaders in their respective fields.

“Schneider Electric has always been a company with its partners at its core and we are confident that we can help increase productivity through innovative collaboration.

“This dual role will ensure the best quality services and support for partners in the IT sector and beyond.”

Craparotta brings extensive experience to both roles, especially in sales, business transformation and the adoption of new technologies, having worked across numerous sectors over the past eight years at Schneider Electric.

Craparotta previous role saw him heavily involved in the convergence of technology as he helped energy and infrastructure providers prepare for a changing future.

“We are delighted to announce this evolution of Joe’s role at Schneider Electric and to have him as the VP for two key business areas,” adds Gareth O’Reilly, Zone President, Australia & New Zealand, Schneider Electric.

“His long history in the IT sector and his passion for Schneider Electric’s partners make him the perfect person to evolve expertise and service in both parts of the business.”
