​MYOB eyes up NZ enterprise with new hire

Cloud accounting company targets bigger end of town.

MYOB has appointed Carolyn Luey as the new head of Enterprise Solutions division, alongside general manager of the company’s New Zealand operations.

Luey joins the trans-Tasman business amidst strong growth, both in its online services and within the range of products it offers to larger businesses.

“After 25 years as a leader in the local market, MYOB has developed a reputation for high quality innovation, service and investment in home-grown talent,” Luey said.

“I’m particularly excited to be given the opportunity to work alongside MYOB’s highly skilled Kiwi team to help simplify the success of thousands of local businesses - large and small.”

With offices in both Auckland and Christchurch, MYOB employs more than 300 staff in New Zealand, including a large team of local designers and developers.

“Carolyn has worked with some of New Zealand’s leading companies, heading the delivery of a wide range of technology and innovation through a period of significant industry transformation,” MYOB General Manager Industry Solutions, Andrew Birch, added.

“We’re very keen to see her bring her skills and talents to bear on both the success of the New Zealand business and also our fast-growing Enterprise Solutions division.”

Over the last several years, Birch said MYOB has been expanding its presence in the mid-market sector, with investments in a number of local companies, including the $28.5 million acquisition of Auckland-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) provider Greentree in August and the investment in Christchurch-headquartered PayGlobal in 2014.

In addition, Enterprise Solutions delivered 12 per cent of MYOB’s revenue in the first half of 2016, with all three enterprise solution products, including the online MYOB Advanced system, growing ahead of forecasts.

Luey joins MYOB from NZME, having worked for the organisation and The Radio Network for five years, and will commence her new role in January 2017.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
