​Jo Healey on board as IBM recruitment drive continues

Former Dimension Data CEO swaps reseller land for Big Blue.

Jo Healey has been appointed as General Manager of Global Technology Services at IBM New Zealand, weeks after leaving the hot seat at Dimension Data.

Reseller News can confirm that the industry veteran will team up with new Managing Director, Mike Smith, at the tech giant, with a confirmed start date of late April.

Specifically, Healey will take charge of the Global Technology Services division at the vendor, spanning mobility, networking, resiliency, systems, technology support and outsourcing and managed services.

Designed to help businesses manage IT operations and resources, Healey will be tasked with helping businesses utilise cloud and cognitive technologies as digital transformation strategies begin to take shape across the country.

“I’m thrilled Jo Healey will be joining IBM New Zealand as General Manager, Global Technology Services,” IBM New Zealand Managing Director, Mike Smith, told Reseller News.

“Jo brings extensive experience from across the ICT industry and I am looking forward to working with her and our clients on their adoption of cloud and cognitive technology to meet the needs of the new digital economy.”

As reported by Reseller News, Healey departed Dimension Data after over two years in February, having joined the ICT solutions provider in September 2014.

Healey spent eight years at Fujitsu in a variety of management roles beforehand, including Managing Director, Country Manager and General Manager of sales and service delivery, alongside previous positions at HP New Zealand and Computerland.

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.

Looking ahead, Healey’s appointment comes less than three months after Mark Baker also announced his intention to join Big Blue.

As reported by Reseller News, Baker vacated his role as Country Manager of Westcon-Comstor in New Zealand, joining IBM as a channel and digital leader in January.

Healey is Smith’s second major appointment in the New Zealand market since taking the reins in October 2016, having returned to IBM after 17 years.
