Brain Gain For Sales Technologies

Auckland, January 25, 2001 - Sales Technologies Limited today announced the appointment of its new general manager, Terry Gaze, who has spent the last five years overseas working for high profile international companies.

Mr Gaze worked in Sydney in senior management roles for EnergyAustralia and Levi Strauss & Co and will return to his home country armed with strategic commercial experience to lead and expand Sales Technologies, which is one of Australasia's largest companies specialising exclusively in customer relationship management (CRM) systems.

With over 16 years experience in the IT industry from software development to strategic planning, Mr Gaze has also worked in senior positions in Australia, and the US in areas of utility, manufacturing, service, distribution and IT organizations.
