Currie Group has announced that Rob Mesaros has taken up the newly created position of strategic executive advisor.
Mesaros joins Currie Group after 15 years with HP, many of them spent abroad, in various senior executive roles. He says, “Personally, the time has come for my family to return home. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at HP, from meeting many wonderful people to experiencing diverse cultures and business environments. I want to thank all of the HP teams I have been a part of, and the many HP channel partners, for providing me with a platform to learn and grow.”
Most recently, Mesaros served as the vice president and head of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing for Asia Pacific and Japan. He officially started his new role on August 3, based at Currie Group’s head office in Melbourne.
At Currie Group, he will take responsibility for reviewing the end to end business operation, with a focus on business planning, and strategic improvement initiatives. He will work closely with Currie Group’s staff, key customers and partners to ensure it continues to gear up for future success.
Mesaros adds, “I am excited to be joining Currie Group in a senior advisory role at such an important time for the company and industries evolution. I have always respected Currie Group’s vision, and most importantly its attention to driving the right customer-centric transformation. The digital transformation of industries is just heating up and I am confident that Currie Group, coupled with its vendors, will continue to play an important role in driving that transformation.”
Significant contributions to HP
Michael Boyle, managing director, HP Australia and New Zealand, says, “During his 15-year tenure, Rob made very significant contributions to HP in a variety of roles across the region, including as managing director in Australia and New Zealand post HP separation in 2015 till May 2018. We thank Rob for his leadership over many years both here in Australia and abroad and we look forward to working closely together at Currie Group.”
David Currie, executive chairman, says, “Currie Group is a long-standing partner with HP and having Rob join the group in the capacity of strategic executive advisor makes sense on many levels. Rob’s experience in running business operations in ANZ and across the region, as well as his deep technical knowledge of the print industry, is complementary to our business model and our future direction. We look forward to working with Rob and all our partners to chart the course for growth and future success.”
