Former KAZ Group executive, Ian McPherson, has been appointed professional services manager at Integ.
McPherson has joined the UXC company to spearhead Integ's communications and networks practice.
He has more than 20 years ICT experience and while at KAZ played a pivotal role in the delivery of more than $50 million worth of defence projects including the Navy's Fleet Information Systems Support Organisation (FISSO). The FISSO project delivers IT infrastructure and support services to the Navy's fleet at sea.
Commenting on his appointment, McPherson said the challenge for many organizations today is finding staff with the right skills.
"As a result businesses are increasingly turning to integrators like Integ who have the expertise to fill this skills gap," he said.
"Integ has experienced a period of solid growth, achieving 130 percent increase in annual revenue since its inception in 2002. That's about 26 percent year-on-year growth.
"This growth is attributed largely to growing awareness among Australian businesses about the productivity and cost benefits associated with successfully designing, integrating and managing their telephony and network solutions."
Integ Group CEO, Ian Poole, said McPherson will be a vital asset as the organisation continues to grow.
Prior to joining KAZ, McPherson spent 20 years in the Royal Australian Navy, retiring at the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
His Naval service saw him undertake a variety of leadership roles both at sea and on-shore, the most significant of which was command of one of the Navy's newest and most advanced ships, the mine-hunter HMAS YARRA.
Integ supports over 2000 customer sites across Australia and has more than 140 staff.
