Lawson Software, a global provider of enterprise software applications, has appointed Stephen Moore as the new Vice President of its Australia and New Zealand operations. Moore formally joined Lawson on 4 December 2006, and is focused on driving growth and development in the region as part of Lawson’s strategy for global expansion.
Moore brings 30 years of enterprise information technology and business management experience to Lawson, and has held a number of senior executive positions, including several years as head of services for PeopleSoft in Asia Pacific. More recently, Moore served as Asia Pacific Managing Partner and Vice President of Unisys Worldwide Services Operations, where he led a team of 600, transformed service delivery and produced a successful business turnaround across the region.
Moore comes to Lawson with an impressive, highly respected track record of driving growth in a number of leading Asia Pacific IT organisations, according to Lawson. Moore also has a deep working knowledge of many business markets across the region.
Lawson sees the ANZ market as an important growth region and expects Moore’s experience in the IT sector to be a valuable asset in maximising Lawson’s opportunities in the market.
The enterprise applications space is a dynamic, hotly contested market right now, as it continues to see its fair share of consolidation and new developments.
Having spent a number of years in the ERP space, Moore knows the competitive landscape. Moore has also watched Lawson and the former Intentia evolve to become the force that it is today. The newly combined company has a strong strategic vision, energetic leadership and an enviable range of proven industry solutions, services and vertical market expertise that is going to be hard for competitors to beat.
Prior to his role at Unisys, Moore was a Director of AeM Group, an Australian private equity IT solutions company. Moore also spent more than five years with PeopleSoft, finishing as group vice president for Japan-Asia Pacific. Moore’s highly successful career also includes the senior executive position of general manager/regional VP at DMR Consulting Group (now Fujitsu Services), a billion-dollar IT solutions and services company. Moore began his career in the Australian Government.
In addition to his IT industry career experience, Moore is also a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Moore holds tertiary qualifications in economics, business, public administration and information technology.
