​Jo Healey exits top role at Dimension Data

Industry veteran departs hot seat as search for new CEO begins.

Jo Healey has vacated her role as CEO of Dimension Data in New Zealand.

Reseller News understands that the veteran Kiwi leader has departed the ICT solutions provider after over two years, having joined from Fujitsu in September 2014.

“Dimension Data confirms that Jo Healey has resigned her position as CEO of Dimension Data New Zealand,” Dimension Data Asia Pacific Chief Operating Officer, Herbert Bockers, told Reseller News via an email statement.

“Catherine Fenwick, Head of Corporate Services, has been appointed as acting Country Manager, whilst a search for a CEO takes places.

Despite confirmation that a search is underway for a new CEO in New Zealand, a source close to Reseller News believes the company is “not going to put a CEO in place supposedly”, rather “have a COO running country” and potentially reporting to region - although this has not been confirmed by Dimension Data.

“Our priority continues to be providing our clients with the highest level of service,” Bockers added.

“Dimension Data thanks Jo for her dedication, leadership and contribution to the company during her time as CEO.”

Healey initially took the reins from interim CEO, Nick Halikias, having ran the Fujitsu business in New Zealand previously.

Healey spent eight years at Fujitsu in a variety of management roles, including managing director, country manager and general manager of sales and service delivery.

Prior to Fujitsu, Healey was national sales manager at HP New Zealand, having started out in the industry as a general manager at Computerland in the early 1990s.

During Healey’s tenure at Dimension Data, the company recently launched a digital practice locally, while announcing plans to move into a new Wellington office in March 2017.

As reported by Reseller News however, Dimension Data has also cut multiple roles in Auckland and Wellington, following plans to move parts of the company’s Service Desk business to India.

As a result, around 30 staff in New Zealand were axed as a result of the change, with the redundancies in line with the company’s new financial year, starting October 1.
