3D visual solutions and integration company Nextspace has appointed Ian Black as a Director and Robert Simon as Business Development Manager.

Ian is an experienced Chief Executive Officer in the information technology industry in New Zealand, Australia, Asia and the UK. From 2001 to 2009 he was CEO of various SAP subsidiaries in New Zealand and Asia, before taking up the position of Chief Operating Officer for SAP’s ANZ region. Most recently Ian was SAP ANZ Vice President of Strategic Industries and Accounts.

Ian is currently CEO of Triplejump Group and holds a board advisory role for Soltius NZ.

Robert Simon has joined Nextspace as Business Development Manager to focus on SAP Visual Enterprise solutions for local and Australian clients. Robert was previously General Manager at CIBER and has held SAP Practice Lead roles at Hewlett-Packard and Cap Gemini NZ. He started his career at SAP.

"These appointments reflects the growth of 3D visualisation opportunities in Australasia and supports Nextspace’s strategic relationship with SAP Visual Enterprise,” said Nextspace Chairman Phil Norman.

“Ian’s extensive ICT industry expertise will be invaluable to Nextspace’s governance, while Robert’s SAP enterprise experience will be key to growing partnerships with the local ecosystem and clients.”

Ian Black replaces Mark Thomas, who is standing down after five years as a Nextspace director, but will continue to have a relationship with the company in his global innovation role at SAP.
