Certus Consulting, an IBM Premier Partner for Software, and leading IT consulting and implementation company, announced today the appointment of Gary Martini, to Account Director. Based in Christchurch, Mr Martini will be responsible for managing key South Island accounts, as well as new business development.
According to Penny White, General Manager Services and Operations, Certus Consulting, the appointment of Mr Martini reflects the company's commitment to expanding its nationwide operation. "Mr Martini has more than thirty years experience in implementation, managerial and business development roles within the Christchurch IT industry.
