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.

“[Roberts] has deep technical knowledge across all architecture layers coupled with excellent consulting, business, and project management skills,” Allen said.
