Motorola Solutions has appointed David Arkles as general manager of the company’s A/NZ Enterprise team.
Arkles replaces Neale Joseph who was recently promoted to the role of vice president of channel sales for the Asia Pacific and Middle East region.
Arkles will be responsible for leading Motorola Solutions' enterprise solutions and channels team in Australia and New Zealand.
He will help to deliver business-critical mobility solutions to customers across industries such as retail, minerals and energy, transport and logistics, supply chain, healthcare and education.
He has worked alongside the Motorola Solutions team over the past few years on a range of strategic planning and business coaching initiatives, and brings more than 20 years’ experience in the ICT industry, with particular expertise in strategy, business development and corporate change.
Some of his executive level assignments have included leadership of Ericsson’s Enterprise/Services organisation across Australia and the United States, as well as a number of senior sales and marketing roles at Wang, Ericsson, and Volante at the time of its merger with IPEX.
Motorola Solutions managing director A/NZ Steven Crutchfield said Arkles brought a wealth of experience and a strong passion for mentoring and building professional capability to help teams perform their best.
"He’s worked with some of the biggest names in the telecommunications industry, and understands the critical factors that underpin success in the development and delivery of complex, multi-disciplinary solutions.”
