Certus Consulting Expands South Island Operation with New Account Director, Gary Martini


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. His considerable knowledge of the local market, as well as his solid understanding of the IBM product range, significantly boosts our ability to deliver end-to-end services to our South Island based customers."

"The South Island market differs slightly from the rest of the country in that it is predominately comprised of small to medium companies. When it comes to meeting their IT needs, return on investment is crucial," explains Gary Martini. "Certus Consulting's high calibre solutions, particularly in the area of professional services, will be of great value to South Island customers."
