Tech industry association CompTIA has announced its first ANZ Channel Community Executive Council (EC) members in New Zealand.

The new New Zealand members are Warwick Grey, sales manager, Hachiko and Grant Finer, chief technology evangelist, Pivot Partners.

The appointments were made following the ANZ Channel Community’s first meeting in Auckland in May and in anticipation of the next event scheduled for November.

Moheb Moses, director, Channel Dynamics, and ANZ community director, CompTIA, said, CompTIA’s new EC members will play a “pivotal role in raising awareness and support for the community in New Zealand, as well as attracting new members in the region”.

Moses said CompTIA’s mission is to be seen as a credible organisation that influences the industry and "having a presence in New Zealand is a critical part of this” – and will also let the association support partners and managed service providers (MSPs) that are “typically under-serviced by vendors, letting us make more of an impact on their businesses”.

“There are already a number of industry bodies in New Zealand, and CompTIA can play a significant role in working with, and supporting, these bodies through its research, education programs and philanthropic activities. It’s fantastic that we have appointed two industry veterans who can identify the gaps where we can add the most value without replicating what’s already working.

“Warwick Grey has a long history in the IT industry, and has built up a significant network through that experience, which adds further to the value he can bring in helping the ANZ Channel Community meet its objectives.

“Grant Finer is well-versed in many aspects of presenting technology to stakeholder audiences, and acting in an evangelist role, bringing an element of diversity and action orientation to the community.”

“CompTIA has an important role to play in the New Zealand ecosystem. Growth in membership, participation and enrolment of local stakeholders of multi-national members are all key ingredients of success as an EC member. I am looking forward to orchestrating all of these aspirations to success,” Grant Finer said.

“My expertise is in providing the support and balance needed to ignite an audience across the right mix of traditional, digital, and social channels,” said Warwick Grey.

“This expertise has been gained from 30 years of working across the ANZ and APAC IT channels in a variety of roles with vendors, my own start up and my own independent software vendor (ISV).”
