Gray steps down at EDS to free up time

EDS New Zealand managing director Robert Gray says he's stepping down from the job to explore other personal and business opportunities.

EDS New Zealand managing director Robert Gray says he’s stepping down from the job to explore other personal and business opportunities.

“It’s been a personal objective of mine to free up some spare time to do other things,” he says. “I’ve got a few ideas, some of which are outside the [IT] industry.” They include being involved in a possible start-up.

Gray has been in the top job at the IT services giant for two-and-a-half years. He will continue full-time as managing director until a successor has been found, which he expects to happen within the next two months. He will then take up a part-time post with the company, assisting the new managing director for a minimum of three days a week, with the particular brief of helping the New Zealand company to grow.

His decision to step down is entirely voluntary. “When I moved into this position, I gave myself two years before I’d review things, and those two years have become two-and-a-half.”

Gray joined the company in 1995 as director of operations, and was sales director before he moved into his present position.
