NSC adds to managed services team

Michael Clarkson brought on board to further develop NSC's growing interest in managed services

NSC has appointed Michael Clarkson as its national services manager to bolster its managed services business.

Clarkson will be responsible for managing the integrator’s managed services portfolio in the newly-created role.

“I left Avaya last year and was looking to join a company that I could work across a number of different products,” he said. “NSC is a growing company and I felt it was a good opportunity.”

NSC has ambitious plans to grow its managed services business, which currently accounts for a third of its overall business. It has plans to appoint five more staff to various roles.

“It’s been a successful area for us, and there are more opportunities as people shift from a CapEx to OpEx model,” Clarkson said.

He has more than 20 years experience in the ICT industry in a variety of roles with companies such as Telstra, AT&T and Avaya, and with the NSW Police, . In his previous role at Avaya, he spent 10 years as its director of maintenance and managed services.

Last month, NSC won a contract with the Australian National University to implement an Avaya solution.
