Fronde general manager Don McLean has been appointed to NetSuite’s Business Partner Advisory Council to represent A/NZ NetSuite partners.
The Council is a strategic business forum between NetSuite and a select number of authorised NetSuite distributors with strong local and regional presence.
It has eight partners within NetSuite’s global distributor partner community and reflects the geographical and market diversity of NetSuite’s distribution ecosystem.
Agendas of the meetings focus on strategic and mutually-relevant topics, including distribution business strategy development, channel sales program enhancements and investment plans, NetSuite product strategies and other issues.
Fronde chief executive Ian Clarke said McLean had enjoyed a long and successful history as a NetSuite partner, firstly with OnlineOne – an Australian NetSuite specialist – and then with Fronde, which acquired OnlineOne earlier this year.
“We would like to congratulate Don on his invitation to join the NetSuite Business Partner Advisory Council,” he said.
“Don brings expertise gained from many years of delivering ERP software solutions to help businesses achieve great results and will be a valuable member of the Council.”
McLean said, as both a partner and customer of NetSuite, he was well positioned to positively contribute to the Council and drive issues forward.
“Fronde has a large number of clients in Australia and New Zealand seeing great results from using NetSuite cloud-based solutions to transform their businesses,” he said.
“This appointment will give us a chance to share the feedback and experiences of the clients and partners in the ANZ region. This is a win-win scenario for NetSuite, clients and resellers.”
The meetings take place quarterly and the group meets annually at the NetSuite SuiteWorld event in San Jose, California.
