Shannon Harris appointed Head of Sales at Qrious

For immediate release:

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND: Shannon Harris joined Qrious yesterday as Head of Sales, leaving her role as Government and Enterprise solutions specialist at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) New Zealand to take up the new role.

With over 18 years’ experience in selling large and complex software solutions, Shannon will be a key member of the Qrious Leadership Team, and direct the company’s burgeoning sales function.

Qrious CEO David Leach says Shannon brings high energy and passion to the role, as well as a truly customer-centric mind-set.

“Given her extensive experience and the numbers she can achieve, Shannon is clearly an asset to any organisation. I know she will do a great job of leading our sales team: building on our strengths, uniting our people and achieving the outcomes we want,” he says.

Shannon has also held direct sales and leadership roles at companies such as AT&T Global, Triquestra, Lenovo, Walker Wireless (Woosh) and IBM.

Shannon says that she’s excited to be joining the team at Qrious. “I call myself a sales hunter by trade, but building customer centricity over the years is what makes me tick. Finding solutions to solve complex business problems is what I thrive on, and I think that only genuine customer intimacy can provide these opportunities.

“I have an enormous enthusiasm and passion for working with New Zealand companies to help them achieve great things. I believe that data and analytics is the key to providing critical insights that enable companies to make better decisions and a powerful way to create advantage,” she says.

Nathalie Morris (Ubiquity co-founder) has also taken the reins from Simon Conroy, GM Data Powered Marketing, who is focusing on his next challenge following the merger of the two companies.

Nathalie took over as Qrious GM Data Powered Marketing on 1 December 2017.
