Computergate has appointed Gavin Benson as country manager of New Zealand, as the service provider ramps up operations across the country.

Previously an IT consultant within the business, Benson will run operations from Auckland as the company bolsters capabilities across managed services and solutions.

Benson - who also assumes responsibility for Pacific Islands operations - moved to New Zealand from South Africa in 2016, leveraging experience ranging from pre-sales to project delivering and management.

“It has been an exciting time joining Computergate and helping to grow the New Zealand branch of this global player to the significant operation that it is today,” Benson told Reseller News.

“This promotion will only strengthen the ability that Computergate has to provide first class customer service to the various sectors and brands that we support.

“We have an aggressive growth strategy in place which will deliver expansion and enable Computergate to strengthen the current structure in New Zealand.”

Prior to joining Computergate, Benson led a South African IT venture, Frog-IT, specialising in managed services and IT projects focussing on premium customer service.

“Gavin’s appointment gives Computergate an even stronger foothold in region that will provide maximum benefit for vendors, distributors, resellers and clients in New Zealand,” Computergate CEO Mario Greco told Reseller News.

“We have met and exceeded expectations in a market where our partners had been asking us to support them. With so many new and exciting opportunities Computergate ventured across the Tasman and invested locally in the market here and we have seen noteworthy growth in New Zealand.”

With services expertise across cloud, monitoring and maintenance, Computergate partners with more than 20 vendors in the local market, including Intel, ATEN, Milestone, QNAP, Synology and Rimage.

“Our service centric approach to our partners and customers has clearly given the company a huge advantage in developing our service capabilities and enabled a stronghold in the market for all of our partners,” Greco added.
