Robotic process automation provider Automation Anywhere has appointed 30-year IT industry veteran Tim Ebbeck to head its Australia and new Zealand business.

Ebbeck is charged with growing Automation Anywhere’s business in ANZ, building and helping organisations in Australia and New Zealand realise the combined power of RPA and artificial intelligence in re-engineering the modern workforce. 

He joins after a 30-year career transforming the ANZ operations for some of the world’s largest technology companies, including Oracle and SAP, leading and mentoring innovative technology starts-ups, and undertaking strategic reviews, including the first strategic review of NBN Co.

Ebbeck is part of the Asia Pacific Japan region led by Adrian Jones, Automation Anywhere’s executive vice-president for Asia Pacific and Japan.

“The market in ANZ presents a unique opportunity for Automation Anywhere, with its fast-changing workforce and its economy shifting from traditional industries to services and professional sectors,” Jones said.

“Tim brings a wealth of experience guiding multinationals and local enterprises through huge transformations in this part of the world, and we’re excited to have him at the helm.”

Ebbeck was managing director of Oracle in ANZ until late 2016 and was also chief executive of SAP in ANZ and led SAP to its largest-ever four years in this market.

Most recently Ebbeck was executive chairman at ASX-listed data collaboration software company IXUP.
