IBM systems integrator, Certus Solutions, has appointed Gerard Roberts to the new position of Enabling Solutions director (based in Sydney) to lead its line of business (LOB) unit across its offices at major centres in Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).
The LOB unit combines specialist Certus sales and consulting expertise around IBM’s Web applications including mobility, enterprise collaboration, social business and middleware, and IBM’s rational software development environment.
Certus managing director, Brian Allen, said Roberts brings “great depth and breadth of experience, both as a senior manager and a leading enterprise architect with international experience in key market sectors, such as banking and finance, telecommunications, and the public sector.
“[Roberts] has deep technical knowledge across all architecture layers coupled with excellent consulting, business, and project management skills,” Allen said.
Before joining Certus, Roberts worked for Digital Post Australia as chief technology officer (CTO), and has also held the role of systems integration practice manager at SMS Management and Technology.
Prior to these tenures, he worked in the UK with Marsh, Capgemini, and Lloyds Register of Shipping.
