Cape Town (PRWEB) April 20, 2016
Agile Business Technology (Agile), a boutique low-code consulting company, today announced the appointment of experienced ICT sales leader, Jaco Barnard as its new Head of Business Development and Customer Engagement. He joins Agile after having worked for several blue chip consulting organisations including PwC, IBM, Accenture and most recently Wipro Technologies (South Africa).
Jaco, who holds an Engineering Degree (University of Pretoria) and Master’s in Management (MGSM, Australia), has worked with large organisations across Africa, Asia Pacific and Europe, to achieve their strategic objectives through the deployment of advanced application technologies.
In his previous role, Barnard was responsible for the establishment of Wipro’s Consumer Business Unit in South Africa, servicing local retail and consumer goods organisations. At Agile, he will be responsible for managing Agile’s sales activities to keep pace with growing demand for accelerated application delivery through the use of Rapid Application Development (RAD) platforms.
“We have realised that our customers’ need for speed (largely driven by digital transformation initiatives) requires new approaches and platforms that enable the delivery of new apps in days and weeks, instead of months”, said company founder Warren Eiserman. “I have previously worked with Jaco at PwC and believe his focus on client success, coupled with his grasp of the key technology trends will further strengthen Agile's position as a thought leader in this emerging aPaaS segment”.
“Digital transformation and business agility is becoming a key imperative at most organisations I deal with” added Barnard. “Agile’s strong DNA in assisting large and medium sized organisations solve complex business problems using the latest technology accelerators will be a key differentiator for us in the local market. I look forward to working with the talented team to aggressively grow sales and improve our market position.
