Unisys New Zealand head Russell Stanners is leaving the company as control of the local subsidiary passes to a single Australia and New Zealand managing director.
Stanners was offered the Sydney-based job but says he didn't want to leave the country to take it up.
“I was very tempted, but I came back to New Zealand to stay here,” he says. He's decided to look for "opportunities elsewhere in the New Zealand business world".
The company's top New Zealand position will be that of executive director, which will be filled by former global industries general manager Grant Hopkin.
Meanwhile, the company has laid off "fewer than 30" staff working in depressed parts of the market, confirms human resources manager Ken Goodwin.
It has since hired new staff in thriving areas and the head count of 600 remains much the same, he says.
