Auckland-based Digital workspace specialist Deptive has promoted Daniel Almond to the new role of General Manager as it looks to capitalise on the booming demand for cloud-enabled work and collaboration platforms.
Almond, who previously served as Deptive’s Innovation and Operations Manager, will now oversee the three key areas of focus for the company – Cloud and Infrastructure, Modern Workplace and Technical Operations.
Coming up on eight years at Deptive, Almond counts as one of the company’s original employees. He joined to help realise founder Jason Poyner’s goal of creating a specialist service provider with a tight focus on helping customers develop fit for purpose digital workspaces.
“We were just a small team of engineers back then,” says Almond, whose career prior to joining Deptive included roles at IBM, Gen-i and British Gas.
“Deptive has grown significantly since then and so have I. This is a great opportunity for me to take a broader view across the business and devote time to developing our offerings and also the incredible talent within the Deptive team.”
Deptive has extensive expertise in the Microsoft stack of technologies as a Gold-certified Microsoft Partner for Cloud Platform and Windows and Devices. Its experience extends to Citrix as a Platinum Partner, VMWare and several other leading technologies that enable scalable and secure digital workspaces.
“From helping customers use Microsoft Power Apps to deploy apps that solve business problems to modernising endpoint management and designing cloud architecture, we offer the support our customers need to get the most out of the technology they are using,” Almond says.
Deptive founder Jason Poyner says the appointment of Almond as General Manager signals a new phase of development for the company, which has 20 employees and a roster of clients including Fidelity Life, Bayleys, Oji Fibre Solutions, and the New Zealand Government.
“Daniel has been a core member of the Deptive team since the early days,” says Poyner.
“I’m excited to be able to apply his considerable skills and experience across the business and in the process allow us to deliver at the highest level and be both the best IT company to work with and to work for.”
