The Instillery has appointed Nick Whitmore as business development manager for enterprise and government customers in New Zealand, as the cloud consultancy group targets the top end of town.
Effective 10 July, Whitmore will be tasked with growing the company’s footprint across both markets, focusing specifically on cloud infrastructure, automation, connectivity and security.
“Nick will be instrumental in helping us to capitalise on our recent period of growth - his appointment is a critical one and will add significant scalability to The Instillery,” The Instillery founder and CEO Mike Jenkins said.
“For us, it’s brilliant timing as we’re seeing huge demand from Kiwi organisations seeking a trusted partner to help drive velocity in their cloud adoption strategy.”
Since starting out with IT and sales roles at IBM in New Zealand, Whitmore has since specialised in multi-cloud, networking, security and DevOps, having worked in both Australian and UK markets.
“Nick has a fantastic track record of working with organisations to help solve business challenges, take out cost through outcome focused cloud managed services in parallel to automating labour based processes,” Jenkins added.
“With a huge appetite to innovate and a great awareness of how technology can help deliver tangible business outcomes for our clients, we couldn’t be more excited to have Nick bring his industry expertise and client service ethic to The Instillery team.”
For Whitmore, the move offers the chance to capitalise on the growing uptake in public cloud across Australia and New Zealand.
“The Instillery team has a focus on innovation and a commitment to helping their clients deliver more efficient services with cloud and automation which is a culture I’m looking forward to being a part of,” Whitmore added.
Based in Auckland, The Instillery also operates in Australian, UK and US markets.
