JDS says Banks will be responsible for all aspects of growth and customer success and will report to Managing Director, John Bearsley.
Banks has over 35 years of ICT industry and management experience across 40 countries and as Vice President for GBM Software in Dubai, he managed teams throughout the Middle East.
Banks held IBM executive positions over 16 years in outsourcing and software divisions across Asia Pacific, and most recently served as Sales Director for Micro Focus in Australia.
“We have undergone a major realignment of JDS towards a practice model,” Bearsley said.
“In this new role, John will add a new edge to the team, bringing new names to the organisation, whilst expanding or engaging with our loyal customers. He brings a wealth of industry and business growth experience to the JDS team.”
“In the current climate of ‘onshoring’, Australian companies need partners that they can rely on for delivery, but they also need trust,” said Banks.
“Being an Australian-owned company staffed entirely by Aussies, JDS is now perfectly positioned to build upon the history they have developed with their customers over the last 17 years. I am very excited to have the opportunity to be a part of this next phase of JDS’s story.”
