Alcatel-Lucent appoints kiwi channel chief

Alcatel-Lucent has appointmented Rebecca Hick as channel manager for its Enterprise Business division in New Zealand.

Hick will lead a growing sales team and manage a multi-channel network of resellers.

An ICT specialist, Hick joins Alcatel-Lucent from Fronde, an IT services company, where she was client business manager and consultant.

Prior to that she held similar roles at Vodafone, Air New Zealand and ASB bank.

'New Zealand is an important market for Alcatel-Lucent,' said Sean O'Halloran, VP of Alcatel-Lucent's enterprise business, Australasia. 'We are pleased to be able to add someone with Rebecca's talent and depth of experience to help us meet the needs of our customers here.'

In the past 12 months Alcatel-Lucent has announced two big projects with New Zealand enterprises. Transpower awarded the company a five-year, multi-million dollar, network integration and transformation contract, and Kordia selected Alcatel-Lucent's IP routing products to support the delivery of Freeview TV simultaneously over both satellite and terrestrial networks.
