People not technology make difference says IT company in appointing new senior exec

Christchurch, 26 March 2008. - Information technology (IT) consulting company Clarus Limited today announced the appointment of Barry McAlpine to the new position of Human Resources Manager.

Prior to joining Clarus Mr McAlpine has been working in senior in-house HR roles and HR consulting in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom.
