Certus Consulting strengthens IBM capability with appointment of Stephen Gordon to Principal Consultant

AUCKLAND, 21 October 2002 - Certus Consulting, an IBM Premier Partner and leading IT consulting and technology implementation company, today announced the appointment of former IBM senior systems engineer, Stephen Gordon, to Principal Consultant. In this new role Mr Gordon will assist Certus clients at a strategic level with customer solutions based on the IBM technology platform.

In his long IT career, Mr Gordon has worked in several markets including the United Kingdom, South Africa and New Zealand, gaining substantial experience in IT operations, networking, applications development and mainframe environments.

"Stephen Gordon brings to Certus Consulting an impressive array of skills from more than twenty years in IT, including senior positions at IBM and Lotus," says Greg Woolley, Managing Director of Certus Consulting. "In particular, he has become a recognised specialist in knowledge management, e-business, e-learning, messaging and collaboration. This skill base will be of enormous benefit to our customers as we continue to expand our business consulting capability."

"Certus Consulting is a recognised leader in the implementation of successful knowledge management solutions, based on business needs rather than IT offerings," explains Stephen Gordon. "This involves streamlining internal processes by implementing the right technology for the needs of the customer. Our task is to continue assisting Certus clients by creating greater value from their information, including information they may not know they possess."
