SAP Australia and New Zealand has appointed Keir Garrett as Head of SAP Cloud Solutions for New Zealand in order to strengthen its focus on cloud solutions in the country.
The strategic appointment is aimed at supporting SAP’s cloud strategy, which will see New Zealand government and businesses of all size adopting its cloud solutions.
Garrett is based in Auckland and is responsible for the go-to-market and sales delivery of the SAP Cloud solutions portfolio, covering all customer and financial line-of-business solutions, excluding human capital management and supplier solutions.
Prior to his appointment Garrett was the sales director at enterprise software solutions provider, Infor. He joins SAP with over 15 years of executive sales under his belt and has previously worked at Lawson Software.
“Discussions around cloud in New Zealand have moved swiftly from defining the technology to its wide adoption,” said Garrett.
“SAP and its partners are fully enabled with the deepest cloud portfolio in the industry to facilitate this adoption and deliver the flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness New Zealand businesses and government agencies need to better serve their customers and citizens.”
Together with other SAP cloud executives, Garrett will be hosting the launch of SAP’s entire set of cloud solutions at two upcoming customer events in Auckland and Wellington.
