FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Andrew Collins to lead gen-i e-Procurement Group

AUCKLAND, Friday November 17, 2000 – With the recent growth and focus towards procurement and asset management, Internet Integrator, gen-i limited is moving to push traditional product delivery boundaries for clients and develop full life-cycle management of their IT infrastructure. The promotion of Andrew Collins to the new position of Procurement Manager to control these IT processes from a strategic level is a reflection of this trend.

In this role, Andrew will be responsible for developing procurement and asset management solutions for gen-i’s clients, formulating strategies for client acquisition and also managing the Auckland and Wellington based procurement teams.

“While our focus is on developing exciting service offerings, we must also be vigilant that we are achieving our core competencies of providing our clients with industry-leading, prompt, intelligent service, and ensuring their product supply risks are mitigated,” says Andrew. “We must ensure also that in the ‘e-revolution’ of B2B commerce and ‘online everything,’ our clients still have the same fundamental requirements that they have always had - simplified and efficient delivery of IT products.”

“gen-i procurement is not about developing one model for all clients,” says John Bessey, General Manager of Procurement, gen-i limited. “We focus on each client’s business and their requirement using international best practice to reduce the costs they have in acquiring IT. Andrew's promotion allows us to get closer to our key clients so that we can continue to evolve the procurement services we are offering.”

Andrew has over 6 years of experience in the IT industry. Prior to this role, he was Account Manager for Procurement, where he worked with such clients as NZI and Ravensdown Fertiliser. Before joining gen-i, Andrew worked as a Technical Analyst for the global telecommunications company, Xpedite International and he has also been Retail Sales Manager at PC Direct where he managed a growing team of sales representatives.
