CA Technologies Focuses on Key Industry Verticals with Three New Senior Hires
Kevin Brough joins to head up the Telco and Media team, Craig Williams takes on the BSFI team and Richard Kulkarni joins as the head of the CSG division. All three will report directly to Bill McMurray, Managing Director, CA Technologies, ANZ and will be responsible for business operations including strategy, sales growth and strategic business development within their respective industry vertical.
“The domain expertise of these new appointments allows us to focus on growing our business further in markets that are key to CA Technologies,” said McMurray. “These are industry recognised leaders that will significantly strengthen our local management team.”
Mark Bennett has come on board to lead Services for ANZ and reports to Darren Reid, Senior Vice President for Services, Asia Pacific & Japan. Bennett will also sit on Bill McMurray’s leadership team to ensure the close integration of sales and services, which is key to enabling customers to realise the full value of CA Technologies solutions from inception through to business operations.
The new appointments will be based in Sydney, working from CA Technologies headquarters in North Ryde, with the exception of Craig Williams, who is based in the St Kilda office in Melbourne.
