Fujitsu to bring global benefits to New Zealand customers

Fujitsu New Zealand Limited

Wellington, January 26, 2001

Fujitsu New Zealand today announced a closer trans-Tasman alignment with its parent company, Fujitsu Australia Limited. Fujitsu has revised its strategic direction in Australasia to optimise leverage from Fujitsu's global investment in Internet technologies and its partnering relationships with Microsoft, Cisco Systems and others. As a result of the review, the Sales, Solutions and Services teams in New Zealand will be more closely aligned with the corresponding businesses in Australia.

"Fujitsu is aggressively pursuing its stated business objective to become a leading e-Services company in Australia and New Zealand," Mr Phil Kerrigan, CEO, Fujitsu Australasia said. "By realigning the businesses in Australia and New Zealand we will strengthen our ability to provide the best possible e-Business, IT infrastructure and service delivery benefits for our New Zealand customers."

"Mr Bill Beale, Managing Director of Fujitsu New Zealand, has regrettably elected to leave the company to pursue other interests. Bill has been with Fujitsu in New Zealand for almost five years. He has been instrumental in introducing a range of initiatives for customers including call centre services, the Fujitsu Integration Centre for Windows 2000, and our award-winning customer partnering process."

Fujitsu, a world leader in Information Technology, is enthusiastic about the New Zealand marketplace and is looking to significantly grow its customer base over the next two years, with the introduction of a range of leading edge e-Business and IT Infrastructure services.

A new Country Manager for New Zealand will be appointed shortly. In the interim Mr KS Tan, currently Executive General Manager of Fujitsu's desktop integration services business in Australia will relocate to New Zealand to manage the operations.
