Ching joins Eaton from Vertiv Co, a US data centre services provider, where he was head of Supply Chain ANZ. He has over two decades’ experience working in the industrial and technology industries, including a number of senior supply chain, operations and strategic planning roles at network power company Emerson in Australia, United States, China and Philippines.
Gordon Makryllos, managing director, Australia and New Zealand, Eaton, said Ching’s diverse experience would strengthen Eaton’s supply chain and operations capability across Asia Pacific, adding value to customers and channel partners.
“Supply chain is a critical dimension for our customers and partners who rely on us to meet their timeframes and deliver quality product to hundreds of locations across Australia and New Zealand," he said.
Ching said he wouldbe working closely with Eaton’s power quality, power distribution and growing services teams to increase supply chain flexibility.
“Eaton is a diverse business with a strong commitment to driving excellence and doing business right. This is reflected across its global supply chain – from suppliers, right through to its globally owned factories and innovation facilities. This is a key advantage that allows us to respond quickly to customer requests across the region.
“My focus will be to build on this strong foundation, driving sustainable solutions locally that deliver positive outcomes for customers and strengthens our capability to meet future market requirements.”
