​Colin Henderson takes top role at HPE NZ

Tech giant replaces Keith Watson from within.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has appointed Colin Henderson as new managing director and general manager in New Zealand, replacing the recently departed Keith Watson.

Effective immediately, Henderson takes the top role at the tech giant following an “extensive internal and external search”, and is tasked with leading the business across New Zealand.

“After an extensive internal and external search, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Colin Henderson to lead the Hewlett Packard Enterprise New Zealand team, effective immediately,” HPE managing director of South Pacific, Stephen Bovis, said via an internal company memo.

Henderson currently leads the Sales for Enterprise Group in New Zealand, having previously led the HP outsourcing business pre-EDS acquisition, while also performing roles which included solutions management, sales leadership and international strategy.

With extensive experience in the ICT industry across many disciplines, Henderson has worked with global organisations and smaller start-up operations across Europe and Australasia.

Henderson’s career spans 17 years with BT in the UK & Europe to Australia and New Zealand with companies such as Telecom New Zealand (now Spark), Alcatel and now HPE.

"Colin provides leadership, innovation/creativity and determination coupled with an exhaustive experience in solution sales," Bovis added.

"Colin has a well-established network from a local, regional and global perspective and has developed his own executive relationship credentials."

Henderson replaces Keith Watson, who officially departed the vendor at the end of 2016.

As reported by Reseller News, Watson held the hot seat in New Zealand for 12 years, following a long and established career within the ICT industry.
