Home People People Moves McGee gets CTO spot at HDS

Hitachi Data Systems has appointed Andrew McGee as its Australia and New Zealand chief technology officer.

"For customers to realise their business vision, it is important for HDS to understand the evolving needs of the ANZ market. Andrew will play a crucial role in increasing our understanding of customer requirements and business directions, and using this insight to drive technologies that help organisations innovate with information," said HDS's ANZ regional VP and general manager Neil Evans.

Mr McGee joined Hitachi Data Systems in 2006 and has held a number of senior sales and solutions roles with the company, supporting customers in various sectors including government, banking, mining, manufacturing and insurance.

"We are increasingly focusing on providing our customers with continuous cloud infrastructure that enables a non-disruptive shift to a new model of pay-per-use computing," he said.

"My role will be to assist enterprises with that transition, and deliver agile and automated technology solutions that enable IT departments to successfully execute projects at speed."

Mr McGee's predecessor, Adrian De Luca, was promoted to the role of Asia-Pacific CTO last year.
