New Certus senior appointment signals transformation

New Certus senior appointment signals transformation

13 November 2012. Certus Solutions – the region’s largest specialist IBM systems integration company – has appointed Phil Ogilvie to the new position of Solutions Group Director, based in Melbourne but with a region-wide responsibility across Australia and New Zealand.

Certus managing director Brian Allen says Phil Ogilvie will develop Certus’s capability to be a high level business partner to its customers, rather than ‘just a technology partner’.

“Our Certus PurePlay philosophy is a key driver for our rapid growth and critical to achieving our forecast to double in size over the next three years,” Allen says. “PurePlay is about leveraging our end-to-end services across the full IBM solutions portfolio as a platform from which we can address the business issues and opportunities of our customers at a strategic level. For our customers technology is a means to an end. We need to focus as much on the end as the means. Phil Ogilvie’s appointment to lead and build a Solutions Group within Certus is key to achieving that.”

Phil Ogilvie has 20 years’ experience developing and executing business and IT strategy. He has led significant business transformation projects in many different industries – from telecommunications and banking to utilities and freight. For six years he was a senior manager at Downer Group, where his roles included that of General Manager Business Transformation as part of the Downer EDI Engineering executive leadership team. Immediately prior to joining Certus Phil undertook consulting roles at Tenix and ANZ Bank.

A prolific speaker and author, Phil Ogilvie has been a speaker at more than 30 conferences in Australia, New Zealand and the US, and has published papers and articles on topics ranging from Corporate Governance to IT Strategy.
