Seven executives from ICT services businesses Revera and CCL have been appointed to the executive team of the merged entity, now called CCL.
The merger of the two Spark-owned businesses was announced in February.
Joining CEO Andrew Allan is COO Sri Gazula, who held the same position at Revera. CFO Chris Fairfield, was also previously Revera's CFO while Troy Myer, now technical director, was formerly Revera general manager business development.
Cherie Roache, director southern region was formerly CCL general manager, southern) while Guy Inglis becomes director northern region. He was formerly CCL general manager, northern.
Rik Rogers, director client delivery was formerly CCL general manager service delivery and Richard Hansen, formerly CCL general manager strategy becomes manager of enterprise sourcing.
The company is currently recruiting for an executive to fill the role of director central region.
“The formation of this team is a significant milestone in what is a new beginning for two established businesses,” said CEO Allan.
“Now we can leverage our collective strengths to accelerate our success in cloud and IT services.”
Allan oversees more than 700 employees in offices across Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Nelson, in addition to Blenheim, Dunedin and Invercargill
“The merger was conceived to create a single organisation providing end-to-end IT management and cloud technology services unrivalled in New Zealand,” he said.
“Work continues apace as we streamline processes, culture, and customer experience – the results of which will bubble to the surface without too much fanfare.”
Allan said CCL had full license to write its own rules for success but was remodelling aspects of its services portfolio to support Spark Group’s strategy in the cloud.
Jolie Hodson, customer director at Spark, said the new CCL was the best form to leverage the company’s investment in the two businesses – a move that effectively created Spark Group’s IT managed services and cloud delivery engine.
“We want to extend our position as arguably the leader of IT management and cloud technology services in the country,” she said at the time of the announcement.
“Combining these two businesses delivers the seamless end-to-end services and expertise more clients demand, and ensures we put a panoptic lens to their businesses.”
