Healthcare workforce management software provider Allocate Software has appointed company veteran Matt Durston as general manager for its Australia and New Zealand business.

Durston, who has been with Allocate for 13 years, will manage the entire portfolio of business operations, sales, professional services, and support for ANZ.

“I am very excited about having the opportunity to lead this business at a time when we see significant opportunity to combine our Australian expertise with the world’s most advanced healthcare workforce management solutions that are used by over a million healthcare employees around the world to bring even better solutions to our ANZ customers”, Durston said.

“We are excited to promote Matt Durston to the role of general manager in the ANZ region. His longstanding experience with the company globally will propel us towards future growth in the region.”
