Equinox IT has announced that Deane Sloan has been appointed to the position of General Manager Wellington, in an internal promotion at the company.
Earlier this year Sloan was appointed to Wellington Services Manager and now takes on full responsibility for Equinox IT’s commercial operations and services in Wellington including consulting, software development and training.
“Deane has always looked for different, new and better ways to tackle tough problems,” says Roger Dalgleish, Managing Director, Equinox IT.
“As part of his development in 2013 he attended the acclaimed d.school (Institute of Design) at Stanford University to extend his design thinking knowledge and to introduce new and better ways for his development team to deliver services.
“His focus on continuous improvement, building consultant capability and introducing innovative approaches has enabled him and his teams to deliver outstanding results to our clients.
“His appointment to General Manager Wellington is well deserved.”
Sloan joined Equinox IT in 2000 as a software development specialist and over the years has contributed to many parts of the business including roles as a performance tester, principal architecture consultant, and CTO.
In 2011, Sloan was also appointed to the position of Software Development Director where he transitioned the company’s software development teams.
“We have always prided ourselves in delivering services to our clients that are pragmatic and right-sized for New Zealand conditions,” Sloan adds.
“The IT and business landscape is significantly changing at the moment, it is exciting, and creates an opportunity for Equinox IT to ensure that we continue to deliver excellent services that are relevant for our client’s needs both today and into the future.”
