Rockwell Automation is pleased to announce the appointment of Nigel Williams to the role of country manager for New Zealand.

As country manager, Nigel will be based in Auckland and responsible for all Rockwell Automation sales activities in New Zealand. He will provide leadership in the development and execution of strategy for New Zealand, in alignment with the Australia and New Zealand regional strategy, in order to achieve the sales target.

With more than 25 years experience in the industrial automation industry, Nigel is well placed to manage and grow the New Zealand business. Prior to this role, he was working at Siemens for the past 10 years predominantly in the food and beverage sector.

Nigel is not entirely new to Rockwell Automation, having held various sales and sales management roles with the company between 1992 and 2004. Prior to his initial departure from the company he was the national sales manager for Rockwell Automation New Zealand.

“It’s great to be back working with Rockwell Automation again. The company has made a longstanding commitment to the New Zealand market in terms of service and support and longevity. I’m proud of that commitment and excited by their clear vision to help customers be more productive and optimize their enterprise,” he said

Nigel will work closely with the Rockwell Automation distributor, NHP Electrical Engineering in the execution of the company’s sales strategy. He will also play an active role in the coaching and development of the sales team to meet their individual goals.

“I’m looking forward to working with our dedicated and talented team and enhancing the relationship with our distributor, NHP Electrical Engineering. Through this relationship, we are well placed to meet our customers’ automation requirements,” said Williams.

David Hegarty, regional director of Rockwell Automation South Pacific congratulated Nigel on his new appointment saying that, “It’s a real pleasure to announce Nigel as our New Zealand country manager. He is ideally placed to lead and grow our business in New Zealand over the coming years.”
