 Board International has established an office in Brisbane for the first time and appointed former Acterys partner director Richard Warr to lead the expansion of its business to Queensland.

The decision-making platform provider says it has opened a Queensland office following “robust customer growth in the state” and as part of a strategic expansion initiative to accelerate momentum in target vertical markets including automotive, FSI, logistics, aged care, resources and retail.

Warr was previously APAC Partner Director at Acterys where he was responsible for managing the company’s regional specialist planning and analytics partners. Prior to that, he was a business consultant for Levesys Construction Software and was also a director at Elite Edge.

“The opening of our Brisbane office follows exceptional growth in the Australian market overall,” says Mark Sands, general manager – APAC, Board International.

“At the same time, we see significant opportunity to help companies based in northern Australia with their planning, analytics and business performance management journeys.

“We believe Richie’s extensive experience fostering transformation and advancing cloud technology at multiple organisations in his career will be a tremendous asset in helping Board establish a stronger market presence.”

Commenting on his appointment, Warr said, “I’ve worked in the planning, business analytics and enterprise performance management space for a long time now and am proud to join an organisation with such strong leadership, innovative products and a customer-first culture.

“In addition, I’ve seen first-hand the transformative benefits Board can bring to its customers. I see a tremendous opportunity to help spread that vision and share the benefits with other companies across the state and region.”
