Melbourne, 23 August 2021 – Veritec, an FTS Group company, has today announced the appointment of Francis Kreuzberger to the role of General Manager, Emerging Markets. Francis has started in the role and with this appointment has joined Veritec’s Senior Leadership team.
Francis is a Dynamics 365 and ERP delivery professional with almost three decades of experience leading large-scale system ERP implementations across Asia Pacific. Recognised as a strong people leader, Francis has a reputation for building enduring relationships and cohesive, high-performing teams who engage proactively with customers to deliver real business value.
In this new General Manager role, Francis is charged with driving Veritec’s growth strategy in emerging markets beyond their headquarters in Canberra. He will be responsible for leading the hyper-growth strategy to take relevant go-to-market offerings to commercial, Higher Education and State Government customers in Victoria and NSW. This appointment comes at a time when Veritec is looking to further bolster its Dynamics 365 team nationally following several recent wins in both the public and private sector.
Commenting on the appointment, Veritec CEO Greg Mace said: “It’s great to have someone with Francis’s experience join our Veritec team. He has extensive understanding of leading and working with diverse and high performing teams, and deep expertise in the IT services industry.
Key to our growth strategy is building our capability and customer base outside of Canberra. With Francis on the ground in Melbourne we are well placed to win in both Victoria and Sydney. Over the past year we’ve been hiring more consultants in these regions, so the time was right to strengthen leadership locally. We ensure we hire people that are passionate about crafting solutions that solve customer problems and whose values align with ours. Francis ticks both those boxes and more.”
Commenting on his new position Francis Kreuzberger said: “I’m big on organisational culture, so that was important to me when I was considering joining Veritec. It’s clear they have a strong reputation in the market as an Australian company, well known for delivering to promise, committed to employing locally and actively supporting and developing their people. Joining Veritec was a no brainer for me.”
Francis has been engaged with Microsoft Dynamics technology for more than 15 years, initially as a customer selecting and implementing AX 4.0 into his automotive employer in 2006, then as a member of Microsoft’s Partner community with Eclipse (DXC), Empired, Oakton (NTT) and Datacom. His engagement experience spans the public, automotive, industrial, airline, logistics, retail, not-for-profit sectors.
“The pace at which Microsoft is bringing new technologies to market is unprecedented and reinforces the need for organisations to put Microsoft at the centre of their future IT strategy. Equally important is the need to recognise that bringing that technology to bear inside the organisation is a journey. Veritec has the track record of successfully delivering to promise, committing to their customers long-term success, and fostering that personal connection that comes from being an Australian company focussed on supporting Australian organisations,” concluded Francis.
