"I'm excited to join Dell Technologies – its purpose to create technologies that drive human progress really resonates with me. Every person I have met in the company is proud of their contribution and the culture that is Dell Technologies. It's a company that has customers at its core, not an afterthought. This 'service' orientation really drives behaviour and in turn great outcomes for customers," said Buer.
"I look forward to bringing to New Zealand customers the leading technology they need, via a dedicated and world class local team."
