Canon Creates Four New Positions to Support New Business Direction

Canon New Zealand today announced four key appointments to newly created positions within the company’s Integrated Solutions Group. This Group is responsible for developing and delivering solutions and services to improve clients’ business processes and information lifecycle management.

Steve Lewthwaite, formerly senior business consultant and software marketing manager for Fuji Xerox, has been appointed as professional services consultant based in Auckland. Steve will be primarily responsible for analysing customer needs and proposing business solutions and will work with a team of solutions specialists.

This new team of solutions specialists includes Ichsan Zwart (Auckland), Adrian McNaughten (Wellington) and Luke Shaw (Christchurch). They are responsible for identifying and selling digital solutions to answer clients’ needs and overseeing the successful implementation of these.

Canon New Zealand’s managing director, Tony Wills, said these positions are pivotal to the company’s successful transition from a box-selling to customer-focussed, solutions-selling model.

“These newly created positions will evolve Canon’s technical expertise and industry knowledge,” said Mr Wills. “This will ensure we can identify and understand the issues that our customers face and in turn develop and deliver flexible solutions and services to resolve these issues,” said Mr Wills.

Enterprise content management is a rapidly growing market which is becoming increasingly complex and sophisticated. With the explosion of multifunction applications and the convergence of technology, Canon’s integrated solutions group has re-aligned itself to operate in conjunction with Canon’s business imaging solutions group - responsible for providing hardware solutions.
