Microsoft NZ plucks Intergen exec as new enterprise channel chief

Barrett will be responsible for nurturing partner seller networks

Microsoft New Zealand has appointed former Intergen executive general manager Emma Barrett as it's new enterprise channel chief.

In a statement, the company said the seniority of the role was further evidence of the vendor's commitment to the partner ecosystem across the country.

"It’s fantastic to have someone with Emma’s depth of partner experience joining Microsoft and in such a critical role as our enterprise channel manager," said Phil Goldie, director commercial partner lead, Microsoft New Zealand.

"Emma’s background in enterprise sales and solution delivery will be invaluable in connecting our Microsoft sales teams and partners for customer success.”

The hire comes in response to sweeping internal changes at Microsoft aligned to its new One Commercial Partner business, designed to consolidate several internal partner and services teams, while building out a dedicated cloud unit to boost sales through the channel.

As enterprise channel manager, Barrett will be responsible for nurturing the partners’ seller network by building co-sell partnerships nationwide.

Barrett said she was excited to be joining Microsoft at a time when the company and its partners were "uniquely positioned to help New Zealand organisations transform and compete".

Barrett is already familiar with Microsoft's products and ecosystem as Intergen is a long-term and prominent Microsoft partner.

“For me personally, coming from a partner background and having always worked with Microsoft I can’t wait to use my experience for Microsoft and a broader set of enterprise partners and customers," Barrett said.
