SAP has appointed Phil Cameron as managing director of SAP New Zealand, taking over from Graeme Riley, who has departed after nearly a decade of successful leadership of the NZ business.
Cameron returned to SAP Australia in 2015 after an earlier stint to assume responsibility for SAP’s relationship with the New South Wales Government. He had previously held roles as CEO of SAP partner Innogence (which was acquired by NTT DATA Business Solutions back in 2012), as senior manager for Deloitte in New Zealand, and as client partner for SAP in Queensland.
In his new role, Cameron will be responsible for all customer operations in New Zealand, and he will report directly to newly appointed president and managing director, SAP Australia and New Zealand, Damien Bueno.
“There is a huge opportunity for SAP and our partner ecosystem in New Zealand, as it is the home to some of our most strategic customers who are at the forefront of technology innovation,” Cameron said. “I look forward to returning home to New Zealand to work with our customers and partners on their innovation challenges and seeing what impact we can deliver for New Zealand and beyond.”
On the appointment, Bueno said, “The success of our business in New Zealand is crucial to the success of the Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) market unit. New Zealand is home to some of our most strategic customers, and a first-class team of SAP employees. Phil Cameron is a proven leader, and I look forward to working with him to continue driving a customer focused business and delivering meaningful and lasting social impact in New Zealand.”
