gen-i Appoints New Client Manager
AUCKLAND, 27 April, 2001– Internet Integrator, gen-i has appointed Jacinta Parry as its new Client Manager. She will be responsible for business development issues and establishing and maintaining customer relationships with gen-i’s blue chip clients and new corporate accounts.
“My role involves working closely with all of gen-i’s business groups - infrastructure, fieldForce, procurement and ventures, to provide integrated technological solutions for clients,” says Jacinta.
“For instance, New Zealand businesses are rapidly understanding the cost and performance benefits of a thin client environment. Consequently, this has opened up many opportunities for our company, which is continuing to gain experience implementing and supporting thin client solutions for large corporate customers.
Further, it is my belief that the significant amount of Intellectual Property gained from these thin client implementations has given gen-i a leading edge on the thin client market,” says Jacinta.
“As an internet integrator, our focus is to enhance our clients’ customer connections,” says Ross Hamilton, General Manager of Sales at gen-i. “Jacinta’s considerable knowledge and experience in the area of client management and business development will play an integral part in providing ‘wellconnected’ solutions across all of the gen-i’s groups.”
Jacinta has previously worked as an Account Manager at gen-i, which contained the primary responsibility of identifying new and innovative technical solutions to enhance clients business processes and needs.
Prior to joining the company she was a Sales Consultant for the Digital Equipment Corporation and also an Account Manager at Computerland.
Jacinta will report to Ross Hamilton.
