MessageXchange appoints two new sales executives to help customers with EDI solutions


Business-to-business integration platform, MessageXchange, has announced two new ex-Woolworths sales executives joining its team, bringing decades of digital supply chain expertise and knowledge.

MessageXchange was founded in 1996 and now processes over 300 million messages like electronic data interchange (EDI) and e-invoicing each year. Its customers include Target, Harvey Norman, Costco Australia, The Good Guys and Telstra. It’s the first Peppol Access Point service provider to be certified by the Australian and New Zealand Peppol authorities, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) respectively, for e-invoicing.

The new hires are Girish Kotwal, Regional Sales Executive, and Amod Gholkar, Account Manager. Their roles will focus on building connections with customers and working with them to find the best EDI solution for their business.

Girish Kotwal has over 30 years’ experience in leading large scale transformation and technical programs, bringing a vast knowledge of IT and business transformation for logistics, transport and retail sectors for business-to-business (B2B) integration. Previously he was Program Manager at Woolworths and delivered its EDI program to thousands of suppliers, vendor prepared cross-dock, and transport visibility projects.

“My passion is to connect businesses through message information exchange, and I look forward to using my knowledge and creativity to help customers simplify and streamline their supply chains, procurement processes, and business management. Having previously been a customer of MessageXchange, I knew that the people and culture were closely aligned with my values, which also played a part in my decision to join the team,” Kotwal said.

Amod Gholkar was previously the eBusiness manager at Woolworths bringing expertise in the logistics and retail sectors and business process improvement. Amod has previously managed B2B gateway upgrades and the onboarding and management of article master data synchronisation with Woolworths suppliers across Australia and New Zealand.

“MessageXchange is a clear leader within the EDI market, and from working with the business previously, it was obvious that the quality of services, team, and solutions would be an ideal environment to thrive in. I look forward to bringing my experience and passion to bear in helping MessageXchange’s customers improve their procurement and supply processes,” Gholkar said.

John Delaney, managing director, MessageXchange, said, “MessageXchange is excited to welcome both Girish and Amod to the team. These accomplished professionals understand and are committed to the MessageXchange values and the high standard of products and services MessageXchange delivers to clients. Girish and Amod bring an array of valuable expertise to customers in various sectors, which will help ensure customers achieve a strong return on their investment in our integration solutions.”
