Insight Enterprises has appointed Pat Murphy as executive general manager of Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ), in a newly created local role for the consulting and managed services provider.

Effective September 1, the internal reshuffle sees the industry veteran vacate his role as general manager of APAC Services, a role he has held since January 2014.

“It gives me great pleasure to announce Pat Murphy as our new A/NZ executive general manager,” Insight APAC vice president and managing director Mike Morgan said.

“Pat’s tremendous experience and knowledge will enable us to bring together our supply chain optimisation business and our managed services under one leader.”

Following more than 15 years overseeing end-to-end operations at Data#3, Murphy has helped expand Insight’s consultancy and cloud capabilities across the region for almost four years.

“I could not be more excited to lead the A/NZ business at this time,” Murphy added. “We have an outstanding team across the region, further boosted by the recent acquisition of Ignia.

“We are positioned to assist our clients to leverage their investments in technology to manage their business today, all the while driving transformation initiatives for tomorrow.”

As reported by ARN, Insight unveiled plans to ramp up its Asia Pacific capabilities with the acquisition of Ignia in September 2016, an Australian business technology consulting and managed services provider based in Perth.

The company, which was ranked 43 in last year’s Deloitte Technology’s Fast 50 Awards, provides end-to-end services in a number of industry verticals, including the resources sector, utilities, healthcare, education, and government.

Specifically, the acquisition expanded the services and solutions company’s expertise and capabilities in digital transformation, including user experience, mobility, business analytics and Internet of Things (IoT).

Meanwhile, the internal change comes three months after Insight appointed Morgan as vice president and managing director of Asia Pacific, promoting from within to replace the outgoing Andrea Della Mattea.

With Della Mattea commencing a channel-focused role with Microsoft on 1 July, Morgan moved up the ranks to take charge of regional operations on 3 July.

Morgan’s promotion came less than four months after he joined the technology provider, replacing Matt Hendra as general manager of Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).

With expertise across business, government, healthcare and education, Insight specialises in the provision of hardware, software, cloud and service solutions.
